Students shine at Journalism awards night
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 23 October 2018
“The 18th USP Journalism Students Awards ended on a high note at Laucala campus on Friday night with 14 awards and more than $6000 in cash prizes given out for excellence in journalism.
“Students from Solomon Islands left a memorable impression, taking the top honour in most of the categories.
“Final-year journalism students, Elizabeth Osifelo from the Solomon Islands and Koroi Tadulala from Fiji scooped the premier award, Tanoa Award for the Most Outstanding Journalism Students, sponsored by Fiji Sun.
“Speaking at the awards Osifelo was overwhelmed with the recognition and support.
“The most important thing for us is being a responsible journalist – journalism has taught us not be passive but active – to pay attention to detail, to always be on your feet and to ask questions. We learnt that we must read to develop our thinking,” said the president of the Journalism Students Association.”
