Students United Podcast Honored by Quill and Scroll in Multimedia Contest



On Friday, March 12, 2020, the Quill and Scroll International Honorary Society, a worldwide honors society for high school scholastic journalism, awarded Students United – the flagship podcast of the Students United Reporting Network – the society's highest honor for podcasting in their most recent multimedia competition.


On January 24, 2020, Students United published an investigative piece examining the Department of Justice's investigation into the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), a non-profit in the college admissions process. Due to the investigation, NACAC was essentially forced to remove critical provisions in their "Code of Ethics" that could have a negative impact on students aiming to apply to college.


The 23-minute piece – Students United's first podcast – featured interviews with Eric Hoover of the Chronicle for Higher Education, who spent almost two years covering the investigation; Jeff Miles, a lawyer who represented NACAC throughout the DOJ inquiry; Emmi Harward, the President of the Association of College Counselors in Independent Schools; and Jim Jump, a former President of NACAC.


You can listen to the Students United Podcast wherever you get your podcasts (Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Anchor, etc). For more information on this award-winning episode, see our post about it from earlier this year, or you can listen to it on Spotify below.
