Contributed by Michael Serino

Kelli Grant ’04 has received honorable mention in this year's Roy W. Howard National Reporting Competition for a series of stories published in last year’s Ithacan.

The award consists of a $1,000 scholarship and an all-expense paid trip on October 13 to Indiana University's School of Journalism in Bloomington for a seminar, a professional critique of her work, and career advice from successful professional journalists.

In addition, the Ithacan will receive a $500 award as a result of Grant's selection. Grant served as news editor at the Ithacan last year and this year will be the paper's special projects manager.

The award, sponsored by the Scripps Howard Foundation and the Indiana University School of Journalism, is named in memory of Roy W. Howard, who served as president of the United Press from 1912 to 1920, and as chairman of the board of Scripps Howard Newspapers from 1922 to 1953.
