On Feb. 21, the John H. McDonald (JHM) Awards for excellence in student journalism were announced at the 83rd NASH student journalism conference held virtually in Toronto—and The Eye cleaned up.
The JHMs are held annually to recognize the best in student journalism across the country. This year, we were lucky enough to take home seven awards out of 13 nominations in 10 different categories.
We’re very proud of our editors, contributors and other members of our Eye community who made this work and recognition possible.
A big thank you goes out to The Varsity at the University of Toronto for hosting the conference, and congratulations to The Link at Concordia University for being named Student Publication of the Year. We’re immensely proud to be part of such a talented and passionate student journalism community.
