The North Wind participated in the Best of the Midwest college newspaper convention and placed in three separate competition categories. The paper finished sixth overall in the Best of Show division for a four-year college tabloid newspaper. Curt Kemp, sports editor, took first place in the editorial/commentary category and seventh place in the sports story category. The Best of the Midwest is a three-day college newspaper convention, held this year in Minneapolis. “As the name implies, the convention drew the best student papers from all around the Midwest and it’s great to know that the North Wind-and its writers-can compete against such a large and varied group of publications,” said Kyle Whitney, interum editor-in-chief. Over 300 students and advisers from around the Midwest attended the conference, which is sponsored by the Associated College Press.
