The March 2004 issue of Share magazine‚ Kennesaw State University’s student−produced art and literary magazine‚ has received a number of awards for its innovative design including being named to How magazine’s list of the “Perfect 10.”

“This is like a theater department production winning a Tony‚” said Paul Boshears‚ KSU student and editor in chief of the March issue of Share. “We entered the magazine hoping for a critique. We never thought we’d win.”

How‚ a design magazine‚ sponsors the “Perfect 10” contest for professional magazines. Share‚ with its cover design created from sandpaper‚ was the only student publication to win.

The issue has also received other design awards including‚ the first place award for cover and third place for feature spread by College Media Advisors‚ in its publication “The Best of Collegiate Design 12;” and the second place Best of Show Award‚ given by the Associated Collegiate Press at the recent National College Media Convention.

"I'm incredibly proud of my students‚” said Ed Bonza‚ assistant director of Student Life. “Share pushed the design envelope and it's wonderful to see them rewarded for the risks they took."
