The Associated Collegiate Press and the College Media Association named the Indiana Daily Student as a finalist for numerous individual and organizational awards, including the ACP Pacemaker award. 

The Pacemaker recognizes the most outstanding student publications from across the country. The IDS was nominated for a newspaper and online Pacemaker award.

The ACP named IDS staff members as finalists for design of the year, story of the year, multimedia story of the year, cartoon of the year and advertisement of the year. Senior Ty Vinson was a finalist for reporter of the year. 

The IDS staff was also a finalist for its COVID-19 coverage. 

“With the pandemic closing campuses across the country, many of the papers submitted for the competition were produced with student journalists working from their homes, often miles from campus,” ACP Associate Director Gary Lundgren said in a press release. “The high-quality journalism these newspapers provided, against all odds, is remarkable.”   

The IDS was also named a finalist for several CMA awards, including awards in advertising, design, online and writing. The staff received a nomination for best diversity coverage of the year. 

Winners of the CMA and ACP awards will be announced at the Fall National Media Convention, held virtually from Oct. 22 to Oct. 24.
