Writers from the student newspaper, The Pitt News, won two of the three awards in the 64th Annual Gertrude Gordon Scholarship Contest sponsored by the Women's Press Club of Pittsburgh. Participants attended a press conference and then had two hours to write a feature story based on the event.

Second place in the contest went to Neena Hagen, a senior staff writer for The Pitt News. Third place went to Janine Faust, who just graduated from the University after completing a year as editor in chief. Faust will intern this summer at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
