PUEBLO – The fall 2014 issue of the Colorado State University-Pueblo Today magazine was named Best Student Magazine at a recent student journalism competition.

The Today received the award during the Mark of Excellence luncheon at the Society of Professional Journalists' (SPJ) Region 9 conference on April 25 in Denver. The luncheon honored student journalists from throughout SPJ's Region 9, which includes Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.

Other finalists in the Best Student Magazine competition included Horizon magazine from Colorado Mesa University and College Avenue Magazine from CSU-Fort Collins.

The judges selected the Today as best magazine, noting that the Best Student Magazine competition was close this year, stating that it was a "(d)ifficult category to judge because all of the entries had a different focus. All entries were well-designed, with clean, consistent layouts."

The award-winning CSU-Pueblo Today magazine can be accessed at the CSU-Pueblo Today website (

In addition to the magazine award, Today Editor Christy Wiabel, a senior mass communications major from Colorado Springs, was a finalist in the Online Feature Writing category for her profile on CSU-Pueblo student and recently elected Associated Students’ Government President Sarah Zarr.
