Kiosk, the literary magazine published by Morningside College, has been declared one of 20 finalists in the 2012 Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) Magazine Pacemaker Contest.
Finalists for the competition were chosen from 89 entries. All finalists will be honored at the ACP/CMA (College Media Advisers) National College Media Convention on Nov. 3 in Chicago, Ill. Other finalists include the University of North Carolina, American University, and the University of New Mexico.
Each year the ACP gathers entries for the Magazine Pacemaker award from the previous school year. Entries are judged on content, quality of writing and editing, photography, art and graphics, layout and design, and overall concept or theme.
Kiosk has been produced for 75 years and includes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and artwork composed by students, alumni and members of the Morningside College community. Student Marcie Ponder served as head editor for this issue. Faculty advisers were Stephen Coyne, professor of English; John Kolbo, instructor of art; and Dolie Thompson, visiting instructor of art.

ACP offers its members professional services and resources, and promotes the standards and ethics of good journalism as accepted and practiced by print, broadcast and electronic media in the United States.
