Westmont Magazine Citadel is Book of the Year
Westmont Yearbook Wins Prestigious Award
The 2004 Citadel, Westmont’s yearbook, won a Gold Crown Award for collegiate publications from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association at the 27th annual College Media Convention in March.
Of the 1,238 magazines, newspapers and yearbooks submitted for the contest, 11 newspapers, four magazines and four yearbooks received Gold Crown Awards. Publications were judged on writing and editing, design, concept, photography, art and graphics. The Gold Crown award represents the top 2 percent of college media.
Under the direction of co-editors Megan Gierhart ’05 of Palo Alto, Calif., and Julia Hoerauf ’05 of Villa Park, Calif., the entire Citadel staff worked countless hours to create and produce this outstanding book. Section editors were: Gloria Tebelman ’07 of Vista, Calif (features); Cassandra Lea ’06 of Port Ludlow, Wash. (people); Emilee Hurlbert ’06 of Bakersfield, Calif. (activities); Rachel Wolfshorndl ’07 of Chowchilla, Calif. (dedications); and Meredith Bagdazian ’05 of Poway, Calif. (copy). Chris Humphreys ’04 of Carpinteria, Calif., contributed extraordinary photos. Gierhart and Hoerauf also edited the 2005 Citadel.
“We wanted to produce a book that had a classic feel — something that could sit on a coffee table for years,” Gierhart said. “We wanted to cover everything from student activities to world events. This way, when we look back on 2004, we will remember Westmont activities as well as local and global events such as the Vons’ strike and the war in Iraq.”
Yearbooks from Kansas State University, Harding University in Arkansas and the University of Miami, Coral Gables, also won Gold Crown awards.
The Citadel also won Best of Show for yearbooks under 299 pages from the annual Associated College Press Convention in Nashville, Tenn., in November 2004.
