Scribendi, a print publication produced by University of New Mexico honors undergraduate students, was recently selected as a finalist for the Associated Collegiate Press’ 2013 National Pacemaker award.

The National Pacemaker Award is considered the most prestigious college media award, and is often called the Pulitzer of student journalism. Scribendi is one of seven finalists in its category, judged on content, quality of writing and editing, art and graphics, layout and design and overall concept. Winners will be announced in late October at the National College Media Convention in New Orleans, La.

Scribendi, Latin for "those which must be written," is an annual publication that solicits creative work from undergraduate honors students from over 220 honors colleges and programs in 14 states represented by the Western Regional Honors Council.

Guided by a faculty advisor, Scribendi offers students a chance to delve into the publishing world, as well as showcase their creativity. The magazine publishes poetry, essays, short fiction, foreign language, visual art, photography and open media. Each year, the students strive to create a publication that represents the best elements of design aesthetics, editorial principles, student writing and artist expression.

The magazine is funded by the UNM Honors College, the Associated Students of UNM, Western Regional Honors Council and individual donations.
