NEW YORK, NY - The Columbia Scholastic Press Association announced its top awards for collegiate publications at the 26th annual College Media Convention.

Of the 1,810 current CSPA members eligible to enter the Crown Awards, 1,514 magazines, newspapers and yearbooks actually submitted copies for this competition. Judging took place at Columbia University from December 14-17, 2003 by the Board of Crown Judges. Publications were judged on writing/editing, design, content, concept, photography, art and graphics.

Eight college newspapers, four magazines, and three yearbooks received Gold Crown Awards while 26 other college publications received the second highest CSPA award, known as the Silver Crown. Gold Crowns have been presented annually since 1982, and Silver Crowns have been given since 1984.

The Awards Convocation took place at the Grand Ballroom, The Roosevelt Hotel, East 45th Street and Madison Avenue, New York City on Saturday, March 20th at 2:30 p.m.

Edmund J. Sullivan, director of the CSPA, presented plaques to those winners attending the Convention. Remaining awards will be mailed to winners beginning March 29th.
