Multiple mass media students received awards for 2016 on April 1 at the Texas Intercollegiate Press Association’s yearly competition.

Ram TV and Ram Page all together earned 10 awards, five of those placing in the top three of their categories.

For Ram TV, Russell Howard and Steven Salas took wins in two categories. Howard placed second in the Documentary category for his story on Angelo State Veterans. Salas earned third for his piece, "Rape Crisis," in Production.

Six Ram Page members pulled in eight awards. Erika Walker, copy editor for Fall 2016, yanked on readers’ hearts for her column, "A thank you letter to my absent father."

This was one of very few contest entries that received comments from the judges, who were impressed and felt that Walker reached out to the audience.

Three photo events took awards for Ram Page as well. Photo Editor Kaitlin Trujillo and 2015-2016 photographer Josh Lopez combined their skills to earn second with Homecoming 2016 in the Picture Story category.

Both also earned honorable mentions: Trujillo in the Sports Column category for a piece on the World Series, Lopez for his ASU Lake House photo in the Feature Photo competition.

Marsalis Mahome, Ram Page volunteer, placed second in the News Photo category for his front page photo of Belle Volleyball celebrating its conference championship.

The final two awards came from Hanna Schindler, previous editor for Spring 2016, in Critical Review, and Sam Fowler in Sports News Story.

Schindler’s Tone Deft review on Lady Gaga’s Joanne captured attention. Fowler, now a Ram TV employee, wrote a season wrap up for the Rams and Belles’ historical 2015-2016 basketball season.
