WinonanThe Winona State University student newspaper, The Winonan, placed in four categories in the Best of Show competition at the annual Associated Collegiate Press – Best of the Midwest Conference in Minneapolis.

The Winonan received seventh place in the category of a four-year weekly newspaper. WSU junior Elizabeth Pulanco received ninth place for feature story; WSU senior Sam Thiel received 10th place for sports story; and WSU junior Sara Tiradossi received seventh place for news story.

The Winonan staff also attended workshops, listened to speakers, and participated in a one-on-one critique of the newspaper with a professional journalist. The ACP convention helped The Winonan staff members develop as student journalists and ultimately provide a better newspaper to serve the WSU community.
