Last Thursday through Saturday, the SFA Student Publications department attended the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association competition and conference in downtown Fort Worth. The students who attended represented The Pine Log, the student newspaper at SFASU, and The Stone Fort, the yearbook at SFASU. Among those who attended were two Jack Walkers: Grant Korbel, a Pine Log photographer, and Jessica Layfield, Pine Log copy editor and Stone Fort yearbook editor-in-chief.
"I had a great time at TIPA. We got to compete in several different journalism, photography and design competitions, and I was able to attend workshops about different career paths in journalism," Jessica said.
Grant, another photographer and the Pine Log editor all took home first place for the photos and design of this year's Homecoming page in the paper.
Jessica took home second place in the copy editing competition, and several other staff members won or placed in their on-site competitions or for their previously submitted work.
Congratulations to Jessica and Grant for their success!!
