Recent Chadron State College graduate T. J. Thomson, Golden, Colo., was announced as the winning Great Plains Student Photographer of the Year Friday during the 2013 Great Plains Journalism Awards at the historic Mayo Hotel in downtown Tulsa, Okla.
His winning entry included his work in the Acclaim magazine.
The Great Plains drew almost 800 entries from an eight-state region. A panel of journalists judged competition.
Thomson, said the magazine was originally the brainchild of the CSC Media Club. The Eagle student newspaper sponsored Acclaim this year.
“The administration and our department have both been supportive. This experience supplemented what we learned in the class, with hands-on, high-impact learning,” Thomson said.

Content suggestions and submissions for the next printing of the magazine from faculty, staff, students and alumni can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
