Bakersfield College’s student newspaper staff earned several individual honors, including two first places, and four awards for best newspaper and online publication among community colleges at the Associated Collegiate Press Mid-Winter Convention March 2-5 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco.

BC’s student newspaper, The Renegade Rip, earned sixth place in the nation at ACP’s Best of Show competition, in which one newspaper is turned in at the convention and judged by professional journalists. The category drew dozens of entries from community colleges nationwide. The issue that was awarded sixth was the March 1, 2017, newspaper. ACP also rated the student online publication at www.therip.com third in the nation.
