A Holland College journalism student is receiving an award through the Atlantic Journalism Awards (AJAs).

Alison Jenkins is this year’s student winner of the AJAs journalism prize.

Each year independent panels of judges, armed with various selection criteria, review submissions from students in journalism education programs throughout the Atlantic region, selecting one winner per category.

The student winners will be presented with awards in their home provinces in May.

The AJAs gala dinner and awards show will take place on April 28 at the Halifax Marriott Harbour-front Hotel in Halifax, N.S.

Tickets for the AJAs events, including the gala dinner and awards show, the daytime professional development workshops series and a panel on the future of journalism in Atlantic Canada, can be purchased at
