About the award
For the student deemed to have produced the best investigative piece in their third-year of study.
The Evening Star was created almost overnight in November 1892 by 21 printers and four teenage apprentices who were locked out during a labour dispute at the afternoon News. That first four-page sheet would eventually grow into what is now Canada’s largest daily newspaper, the Toronto Star.
To be eligible for this award, a student must:
- Be enrolled in the fourth-year of the Undergraduate program at the Ryerson School of journalism;
- in clear academic standing;
- submit a piece of investigative journalism in any medium, on any platform, produced during the student’s third year of study.
- submit a letter (250 maximum) outlining the greatest challenge the student faced in reporting this story.
Your application must include:
- A cover sheet stating only: the award you are applying for, your name, your student number, your year of study and your CGPA (in that order). This cover sheet is for administrative purposes only. Please do not include any additional information on the cover sheet;
- a piece of investigative journalism in any medium, on any platform, produced during the student’s third year of study.
- a letter (250 maximum) outlining the greatest challenge the student faced in reporting this story.
