Magazine, news and digital journalism senior Eleanor Quarles took fourth place in the Hearst Journalism Awards Program Feature Writing competition with a piece she wrote for her magazine article writing class last spring.

“My article was about a Facebook group in my small hometown that got really toxic, and how it affected the community and how people in town treat each other,” Quarles says. “I’d been a member of the group since high school and had seen a lot of interesting (and usually concerning) interactions, so I thought it would be really interesting to do a deep dive into the group.”

Quarles will receive $1,000 and qualifies for the National Writing Championship in May.
