INDIANAPOLIS – Five student journalists, including a Cherokee Nation citizen, have been chosen as finalists from more than 3,300 entries in The Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Awards competition.

A release from the SPJ stated that student entries are first judged regionally across print, radio, television and online collegiate journalism categories. First-place regional winners advance to national competition and then compete for the “MOEy” award.

Among this year’s finalists is CN citizen Storme Jones, of the University of Oklahoma, who was recognized for his entry in radio news reporting. His piece, “Norman City Council checks out plastic bag fee” discusses the city of Norman considering assessment of fees to reduce problems with plastic.

The other finalists are:

• Britton O’Daly, Hailey Fuchs, Jingyi Cui and Serena Cho, Yale University (Breaking News Reporting, Large School Division)

• Chris McCrory, Arizona State University (Online In-Depth Reporting)

• Nicole Neri, Arizona State University (Sports Photography, Large School Division)

• Student Documentary Unit Spring 2018, University of Montana (Television In-Depth Reporting)

The winner of the MOEy will be named during the Student Union at Excellence in Journalism 2019 on Sept. 6 in San Antonio.
