The DP was honored as one of the top college newspapers in the country when it received the Pacemaker Award from the Associated Collegiate Press. The award was presented at a national college media conference in Washington, DC on November 2, 2019.
The Pacemaker is often referred to as “the Pulitzer Prize of college journalism.” It is the third consecutive year the DP has received the award, and only the second time the DP has achieved that feat. (The DP won four consecutive Pacemaker awards from 2001-2004.)
Last year’s senior sports editor William Snow ’19 also won the Reporter of the Year award for multiple groundbreaking investigations into issues on several Penn sports teams.
