The Pendulum, Elon University's weekly student newspaper, was honored with Best of Show awards from the Associated Collegiate Press on the last day of ACP's joint convention with College Media Advisers Oct. 31 in Louisville. Representatives from media publications who attend the conference may enter the Best in Show competition. All entries are submitted and judged on site.
The Pendulum placed first in a Best of Show newspaper competition, and the Pendulum Online took first in Publication Website Small School. The paper’s Fall Sports 2010 Preview also placed sixth in the Special Edition Four-year category.
The Pendulum and The Pendulum Online were also honored for being finalists in the Newspaper Pacemaker and Online Pacemaker competitions.

On Oct. 30, Colonnades, Elon’s literary magazine, was honored with a 2010 national Magazine Pacemaker Award from ACP. The Pacemaker is the highest honor ACP gives to its members.
