Media: Big Day For Annual Education Journalism Prize

image from spencer.jrn.columbia.eduToday's the big day for the annual Spencer Education Fellowship at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.  The current crop (Goldstein, Toppo, Carr) -- it's year three if you're counting -- have already presented their updates to the advisory board members, who are then locked in a room in the basement until they agree on three Spencers for next year, plus an alternate or two.  If necessary, the heat will be turned off and the lights dimmed to an annoying flicker.  Rave music has been used in the past.  Then some calls are made, the new folks are announced via puffs of white smoke out the window of Sam Freedman's 8th floor office, and the cycle begins all over again.
