CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

One local school newspaper has made their own national headlines. They were named the country's third best college newspaper!

The Del Mar College Foghorn won the 2014 David L. Adams Apple Awards Contest, placing third in the nation among community colleges. It's an award that is given to the best, and for the Foghorn staff, there was some stiff competition.

"The colleges we compete against, they're good newspapers. They're good organizations," Student Publications Advisor Robert Muilenburg said. "A lot of these have been solid for a lot of years."

Staff worked some long hours to put the paper together, and it shows with their award. Kiii-TV offers our congratulations!
