The Associated Collegiate Press selected the 2004 edition of N.C. State’s literary magazine, the Windhover, from 57 entries as one of 10 finalists in the 2004 Magazine Pacemaker competition. This edition, affectionately known as “magazine in a box,” was edited by Shawna Jones and designed by Will Hall. The Windhover has received the award nine other times, including for the 2003 edition.
In addition, for the first time, another N.C. State publication, the Agromeck, edited by Jaime Trivette, was nominated for the national award, from 62 entries. It is one of 14 finalists in the 2004 Yearbook Pacemaker competition. Other top staff members on the 2004 edition included Josh Bassett, designer; Austin Dowd, photo editor; Rob Bradley, Pete Ellis and Ray Black, photographers; and Erik Snyder and Adam Dunn, writers. The Agromeck is published by Taylor Publishing of Dallas, Texas.
Since 1927, the Pacemaker has been the highest honor ACP gives to its members.
The awards will be presented at the ACP convention in New Orleans Oct. 29.
