Vice Versa Awards
Best Contribution by a Young Journalist, First Place to Kristen Foery, Letters from CAMP Rehoboth, for "We're Here. We're Queer... We're Just Getting Driver's Licenses."
"An eye-opening look at what it really means to be a sexual minority in an American high school these days."
"Kirsten Foery's pieces made me want to e-mail her directly and tell her I thought her work was terrific. If she's considering a career in journalism, I hope she looks at Ithaca College, where I teach in the School of Communications."
Best Contribution by a Young Journalist, Honorable Mention to Kristen Foery, Letters from CAMP Rehoboth, for "School Daze."
"Foery manages to write about herself, her girlfriend, and the daily challenge of being a lesbian in high school without a hint of self-pity and with a winning sense of humor. A delight to read."
Best Front Page or Cover, Division B, Honorable Mention, "Tinky Winky, Little Star," Letters from CAMP Rehoboth, by Murray Archibald
"I have no idea what's inside this issue of Letters from Camp Rehoboth, but I'd pick the magazine up anywayI'm sold on it just by the bright, playful photo illustration on the cover. Too many covers in this category were too literal in their execution; this is an example of a non sequitur cover that works."
