The Chronicle moved on to the final round of the First Amendment Press Freedom Award competition, which is presented to a school that supports the First Amendment through its student media.

The Chronicle was one of seven publications in the U.S. selected as a finalist.

When the “Right on Point” podcast was published in September, it received backlash. Chronicle adviser Jim Burns said he was impressed by how the administration responded to the criticism and upheld freedom of the press for the Chronicle, prompting him to enter into the competition.
