The Journalism Association of Community Colleges (JACC) recognizes excellence in Community College Journalism. Founded in 1955, JACC is a nonprofit on the cutting edge of journalism education, bridging the gaps between students, educators and publications by providing networking and educational events aimed at inspiring members at each stage of their journalism career. This year’s conference combined NorCal and SoCal in an all-new virtual format on November 6-8. During the conference, awards were announced. We are proud to share that students writing for The Peralta Citizen received several awards.
