This marks The Daily’s third placement of the 2019-20 Hearst cycle, which staggers its category deadlines throughout the academic year.
Last year, staffers from The Daily placed in five Hearst categories. Since 2014-15, The Daily now has placed 11 times in the contest, which honors the best in collegiate journalism.
