In an article published by The Cap Times on 11th March, student journalists were the recipients of the First Amendment Awards for their outstanding investigation on various issues on campus, despite the resistance they got from the officials in their respective institutions. The students, from both Marquette University and the University of Wisconsin, demonstrated their strong will in search of the truth, regardless of the resistance they faced. The reporting by Caroline Kaufman of Marquette advocated for the significance of newspaper media in private institutions. On the other hand, Media Milwaukee won with an investigative piece on sexual harassment on campus grounds which received a lot of opposition. According to The Cap Times, the coordinator of the contest, Sam Martino lamented at the restriction of free speech in colleges saying that it is the reason why they needed to bring back The First Amendment back in to the public’s eye. The awarding of these young individuals for their exceptional work in fighting for the truth, was a clear signal that they wanted to cultivate a culture of free speech in media, in colleges and beyond, with their strong belief in the protection by The First Amendment.
