Centennial College's Journalism students have a world of opportunity to be creative at the college's Story Arts Centre. One such opportunity is The Toronto Observer online (www.torontoobserver.ca), the community newspaper website, published by Centennial's Journalism students in the School of Communications, Media and Design.

Our students had the chance to take The Toronto Observer and have it compete with other universities & colleges in the University/College category at the Ontario Community Newspaper Association's Better Newspaper Competition. Founded in 1950, OCNA is a non-profit industry association comprised of more than 300 member newspapers throughout the province. The OCNA awards recognize outstanding work by Journalism students in photography, news writing and feature writing. 

The Toronto Observer faced eight competitors in the same category. The first, second and third place winners were announced during the Better Newspaper Awards Gala on Friday, April 4 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Toronto. Our students took second place for the Best College/University Newspaper Website. Ryerson University took top honours while Humber College finished third. Neil Ward, Imaging Coordinator at Centennial's Story Arts Centre, collected the OCNA Award on behalf of the team.

Centennial would like to congratulate our Journalism students for their achievement!
