Crown Awards honor top student publications and summarize overall excellence in the entire publication and function as a “top-down” view of general excellence.
During Crown consideration, publications are judged on their excellence as shown by their design, photography, concept, coverage and writing.
Crown Finalists are actual winners, not nominees. Some will be announced as Gold Crowns; the rest are Silver Crowns. Final results will be announced and presented at the CSPA ceremonies in March 2020.
