Student journalists from Dallas College Richland Campus showcased their talents and brought home numerous awards from the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association Convention held at the San Marcos Embassy Suites hotel April 11-13.
TIPA, known for its annual three-day conventions held across Texas, drew about 343 students and faculty advisers this year. The event was full of life as attendees participated in 40 different workshops and presentations led by media professionals from around the country.
One of the highlights of the convention was the 30 on-site live contests, where students put their skills to the test in real-world scenarios. These contests pushed participants to work under pressure, improving their abilities in writing, broadcasting and multimedia journalism.
The convention was packed with action from start to finish. After the opening ceremony, students dove into competitions during the first and second day. At the Hall of Fame banquet, everyone gathered for lunch and inspiring talks from Teia Blackshear Collier, an automotive PR professional who sponsors students, and Michael Tribble, the 2024 TIPA hall of fame inductee. Throughout the event, there was also a career and trade show, offering chances to explore future paths in media and journalism.
Richland Student Media made its mark with different staff members competing in various categories like editorial writing, PR release writing, critical review and live video news. Each member brought his or her talents and dedication to the table, to showcase skills within the team.
The awards breakfast was held on April 13, the final day. Anticipation filled the air as everyone gathered for the award ceremony. Prior to the competition, the team had submitted entries ranging from student-written stories to cartoons and photographs. Richland Student Media had every reason to celebrate as its members received several awards for their submissions. With pride and excitement, the awards and certificates were accepted, and was a testament to the member’s and adviser’s hard work and commitment.
After going big before going home, students returned to Dallas inspired and motivated, carrying with them new experiences and knowledge. TIPA not only creates friendly competition but is also a platform for students to learn, grow and make different connections within the world of journalism.
