The first award is the Earl E. Craven Prize in Journalism award for a student who is a staff member of a campus publication who has raised the standards of campus journalism. The second award to Allen was the Eliza A. Drew Prize in Communications for Best Editorial, “Hoodlum Manifesto of the Achievement Gap,” which was Allen’s take on the current fail in public education for K-12 students.
