Recently, students from UNO’s University Honors Program were nationally recognized for their creativity with a second-place award for best student-produced electronic newsletter at the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) which took place Nov. 8-12 in Atlanta.
The recognition celebrates the writing, editorial and design work of “The Distinction,” an electronic newsletter issued each semester featuring news important to the more than 400 students in the University Honors Program.
The electronic newsletter has been in production since 2014 and is currently edited by Christopher Winchester, a sophomore business major.
"Working on 'The Distinction' has provided me with a unique insight into the amazing work Honors students perform each year, challenging me to match the standards which continue to rise with each new story that comes through my inbox," Winchester says.
"I am very proud of the hard work the Honors students at UNO do and how it is being recognized nationally,” says Honors Program Director Lucy Morrison, Ph.D.
The NCHC is made up of 900 unique member institutions representing more than 330,000 honors students across the United States.
An archive of issues of “The Distinction” can be found on the University Honors Program website.
