Chronicle, B.C.M. Garner Awards In C.A.S.E. Contests

The Boston College Chronicle and Boston College Magazine won awards in the recent annual Council for Advancement and Support of Education's District I competition.

BCM won a gold medal in the magazine competition and Chronicle took a bronze medal in the tabloid category.

CASE is a national educational advancement organization; District I encompasses New England and eastern Canada.

Judges cited BCM for being "consistently intelligent, sophisticated and engaging" and praised the "superior writing" and "striking feature layouts, photography and design."

Chronicle finished in a tie with the University of Massachusetts-Amherst faculty/staff newspaper, and behind similar publications at McGill and Concordia universities in Montreal.

The judges praised Chronicle 's "jam-packed format with many interesting stories/features and excellent photography" that is consistent with paper's mission and Boston College's institutional identity.

Papers in the competition also were assessed on their use of resources and Chronicle was cited for having the lowest unit cost and lowest overall cost of any entry in the competition.

Chronicle is distributed to all faculty and staff on campus and is mailed to major current and prospective donors to the University, as well as to other constituents of the BC community.
