Fifteen schools were named as Pacemaker Finalists in February, including two Walsworth customers — California Baptist University in Riverside, Calif., and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

The Pacemaker and Pacemaker Finalist awards are one of the highest national honors in collegiate journalism. The winners were announced during the convention, which took place Oct. 28 through Nov. 1 in Austin, Texas.

According to the ACP, the 2008 yearbook Pacemaker contest saw an increase in the number of entries. Judges looked for a number of factors, including excellent photography, complete coverage, innovative design and exemplary copy.
