December 12, 2019 - Raise the roof!! Our Sara Diggins has earned second place in the Hearst Journalism Awards Photojournalism I competition. Sara, the photo editor at the Montana Kaimin, took these photographs on assignment for the Kaimin or as part of her internship with the Missoulian. Stunning, aren't they? Sara recently earned the bronze medal in the College Photographer of the Year competition. This latest award from Hearst comes with a $2,000 scholarship and the chance to compete in the national finals. Sara is a junior and hails from Salt Lake City. The Hearst Awards are nicknamed the "College Pulitzer Prizes" and we're just thrilled Sara's work has been honored. #topnotch #photojournalism www.saradigginsphoto.com
