The Last of Many Awards for Squatter's Rites

The “Squatter’s Rites” student literary magazine at Vol State has received its last award. The magazine took first place in the American Scholastic Press Association national contest, winning in the Junior/Community Colleges category with enrollment of 2501 or more. It’s just the latest in a string of national awards for the student publication, but it will be the last for “Squatter’s Rites.” Don't worry- it's not going anywhere. The magazine officially has a new name: “Pioneer Pen.” Students and faculty are already preparing for the first issue and student submissions are open now with a March 19 deadline.
