The 2010 edition of Kiosk, Morningside College’s art and literary magazine, recognizes the work of seven Morningside students whose writing, poetry, art and photography was selected by a three-person panel of judges for a series of cash prizes.
In the literature category, winners included Lindsay Washburn, a graduating senior from Sioux City, first place; Krystal Shearer, a junior from Emerson, Iowa, second place; and an anonymous Morningside student, third place. Winners in the art category included April Parkison, a graduating senior from Omaha, Neb., both first- and second-place awards; Tony Wiley, a sophomore from Diagonal, Iowa, third place; Holly Becker, a senior from Sioux City, editor’s choice; and Brooke Spencer, a sophomore from Story City, Iowa, honorable mention.
The 2010 Kiosk, which features submissions from more than 40 Morningside students, faculty and alumni, can be found online at www.morningside.edu/morningside/KIOSK_2010/.
Laura Homan, a senior English major from Lebanon, Ill., served as editor-in-chief for the 2010 Kiosk. The panel that selected the prize-wining entries included Lavonne Mueller, a playwright and poet from New York City; Austin Bass, creative director at Bass Advertising in Sioux City; and Jodi Melnichak, a Sioux City artist. Kiosk faculty advisors included Stephen Coyne, English professor; John Kolbo, art instructor; and Terri McGaffin, assistant professor of art.
The 2009 Kiosk recently received the Silver Crown award for collegiate magazines from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA), which is affiliated with the Columbia University Journalism School in New York City. The crown awards include both gold and silver designations and are the highest recognition given by CSPA for overall excellence. Morningside’s Kiosk was one of nine collegiate magazines in the nation honored with a Silver Crown. Judges evaluated collegiate magazines on writing/editing, design, content, concept, photography, art and graphics. Audrey Hantla of Sioux City was editor-in-chief of the 2009 Kiosk.
Kiosk, which is edited and designed by Morningside students, has been published by the college’s English and art departments since 1938.
