Applications open for Student Media Board

The Student Media Board, which hires and provides input to the collective Student Media in accordance with our constitution, contains three student body representatives elected at-large in a student body election. Nominations are being accepted now through Monday, Feb. 27 at 5 p.m. Any students interested in running for the Student Media Board should visit the NCSU Student Government Board of Elections for more information.

Student media leader interviews scheduled

Applications for Student Media leaders for the 2012-2013 academic year opened Jan. 18. A position package from each applicant was due Thursday, Feb. 23 at noon. The next two steps in the application process are the candidate forum and advisory board meeting.

The final step is the full STUDENT MEDIA BOARD MEETING on Tuesday, March 13 at 7 p.m. in Witherspoon 201. During the meeting, a member from each individual advisory board will make a recommendation to the Student Media Board. The Board may then accept the recommendation and hire that candidate, reject the recommendation and interview the candidate(s), or choose to hire no candidate and reopen applications.

On Thursday, March 1 at 7 p.m. all applicants will appear at a public CANDIDATE FORUM to answer questions about their vision for Technician, Nubian Message, Agromeck, Windhover, WKNC 88.1 FM and the Student Media Business Office. The forum, in the Walnut Room in Talley Student Center, is open to anyone who wants to attend.

NCSU students receive statewide recognition in writing, design and photography

N.C. State Student Media's Agromeck yearbook and Windhover literary and arts magazine were named "Best of Show" by the North Carolina College Media Association at its fifth annual statewide convention Feb. 18 at Winston-Salem State University. Technician and Nubian Message newspapers also received "Best of Show" recognition and the publications received 24 individual honors in writing, design and photography.

The 2011 Agromeck, edited by Susannah Brinkley, dominated the yearbook category. In addition to winning "Best of Show," Agromeck also earned first and second (and sometimes third) place in each of the award categories. The book has already won numerous Gold Circle and Best of Collegiate Design awards and is up for a Gold Crown from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.
