Chloe Bogard placed 16th in the Hearst Journalism Awards’ audio competition on Feb. 21 for her work at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Bogard is a junior broadcasting major from Basehor, Kansas. Her winning entries, on Nebraska’s state government, aired on 90.3 KRNU.

The Hearst competition annually recognizes the best college journalism, including feature writing, investigative journalism, photojournalism, multimedia, television and audio. Entries are evaluated based on their reporting, crafting, creativity and economy of expression. This year’s audio competition drew entries from 41 universities nationwide, with 20 finalists selected from 70 submissions.

“We take immense pride in celebrating Chloe,” said Shari Veil, dean of the College of Journalism and Mass Communications. “Her outstanding performance underscores our commitment to nurturing broadcasting talent at UNL.”

The Hearst Journalism Awards Program was founded in 1960 to support, encourage and recognize journalism students across the United States. The program awards more than $700,000 in scholarships and grants annually, and its competitions in writing, photojournalism and broadcasting are widely considered among the most prestigious in the country.
