NDNA Competition Winner

The North Dakota Newspaper Association (NDNA) Executive Committee announced today that UND Communication senior Emily Gibbens has been selected to participate in the National Newspaper Association Foundation Fellows Program this March in Washington, D.C. Gibbens will be the North Dakota representative in the program and will travel with NDNA Executive Director Steve Andrist.

While in D.C., Gibbens will work with other student journalists from across the country as they produce content under the supervision of professional journalists working in the capital. The fellows will also visit D.C. landmarks like the Newseum and Capitol Hill.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Emily, and I’m very grateful NDNA is supporting her,” said Sarah Cavanah, assistant professor of communication at UND. “Emily is a small-town North Dakotan, but she has shown she has the potential to be a leading communicator in the state. I hope she’s just the first UND communication student to be selected for such a meaningful experience.”

Congratulations, Emily!
