We won five national student journalism awards this weekend

On January 5, the John H. MacDonald awards (JHMs) for excellence in student journalism took place at the National Student Journalism Conference (NASH) in Calgary.

The JHMs are held every year to celebrate student journalism across the country, and The Ubyssey was lucky enough to take home five awards out of thirteen nominations across nineteen categories.

We were up against some stiff competition from the best student publications across the country, all of whom did some amazing work. We feel very lucky and proud to be counted among them. Here's what we won.
