Extra! Extra! Crestiad Earns High Marks from American Scholastic Press Association

The CrestiadThe Crestiad, Cedar Crest College’s school newspaper since 1923, was recently awarded first place with merit for colleges and universities with an enrollment of 1001-1700 by the American Scholastic Press Association (ASPA), the only school in its group to earn this highest possible distinction. According to the ASPA, those schools earning this ranking were, in the opinion of the judge, “an outstanding example of a scholastic publication in format, content, and presentation.”

Elizabeth Ortiz, assistant professor of humanities and advisor for The Crestiad, said of the honor: “We were thrilled to find about the first place with special merit award from the American Scholastic Press Association. As the only school with our size enrollment to receive this honor, it shows that our students are achieving at such high levels—beyond those at many peer institutions. The all-student staff works tirelessly to ensure that the paper is produced weekly throughout the school year despite their heavy academic course load, part- and full-time jobs, and personal and co-curricular commitments. As advisor, I am proud to be a small part of the amazing work that these students do.”
