King’s journalism students have won gold and silver medals in the Canadian Online Publishing Awards.
Gold honours for Best Article or Series went to The Signal, a news website produced by a team of senior King’s Journalism students for their investigative series Overburdened which looked at the under-resourced mental health systems in Nova Scotia and P.E.I.
Silver honours went to The Signal for Best Video Content for the final newscast of 2016: The ‘holiday rush’ to volunteer, pinball’s comeback, hot dancing downtown and much more.
