The Hearst Journalism Awards is an annual event that recognizes the best college journalism in categories such as feature writing, investigative journalism, photojournalism, multimedia, television and audio. Entries are evaluated based on their reporting, crafting, creativity and economy of expression. This year’s audio competition drew entries from universities nationwide, with 20 finalists selected from 70 entries from 41 universities.

"We take immense pride in celebrating Chloe," said Shari Veil, dean of the College of Journalism and Mass Communications. "Her outstanding performance underscores our commitment to nurturing broadcasting talent at UNL."

The Hearst Journalism Awards Program was founded in 1960 to support, encourage and recognize journalism students across the United States. Today, the program awards more than $700,000 in scholarships and grants annually, and its competitions in writing, photojournalism and broadcasting are widely considered among the most prestigious in the country.
