A year after she was named the Martin Buskin Cub Journalist of the Year, Arielle Martinez, a junior at the Stony Brook School of Journalism, has won the 2016 Martin Buskin Award for Campus Journalism.
The Martin Buskin Awards for Campus Journalism are presented to student journalists whose work demonstrates a commitment to excellence through leadership in campus journalism, outstanding work and/or impact on the Stony Brook community. They honor the memory of Martin Buskin, the late education editor of Newsday and adjunct professor of journalism at Stony Brook.
Martinez, the current news editor of The Stony Brook Statesman and the paper’s incoming editor-in-chief, was recognized by the Buskin Committee for Outstanding Campus Journalism for the quality and breadth of her work amid particularly impressive competition this year.
Off campus, Martinez was a Dow Jones News Fund editing intern at the St. Paul Pioneer Press and a New York Press Association intern at the Long Island Press.
Martinez’ name will be added to the Buskin winners plaque in the School of Journalism’s Newsroom of the Future. She was also recognized at the school’s Majors Banquet on May 5.
