Article on Failing Boys by Second Year Student Earns Publication on
globeandmail.com and Visit from Globe Editor-in-Chief
TORONTO, Jan. 7 /CNW/ - A new face will be at the table when a
University of Victoria student newspaper holds its next editorial board
meeting in January: Globe and Mail Editor-in-Chief John Stackhouse.
Stackhouse will roll up his sleeves and join The Martlet's editorial
team for a day in January as a reward for the paper's winning entry in
The Globe Student Newspaper Challenge. The submission was a byline by
second year student Karolina Karas on the topic of why the education
system is failing boys. Karas's article has been published today on http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/time-to-lead/reason-for-gender-gap-in-universities-debated/article1860569/.
"Winning journalism requires unique storytelling and insightful,
compelling ideas, and Karolina Karas's story on failing boys delivers
on both counts," said John Stackhouse, Editor-in-Chief of The Globe and
Mail. "Karolina's thought-provoking analysis sheds light on a major
societal issue in a way that stimulates discussion and action, and
that's the power of great journalism. I look forward to my day with
Karolina and her colleagues at the Martlet."
On October 1, The Globe and Mail revealed a dramatically redesigned
newspaper that features the most significant changes in The Globe's
history, including colour on every page, outstanding photo and graphic
production, special stock paper and custom print options for
advertisers. To kick-off this new era for the Globe, the newspaper
launched "Canada: Our Time to Lead," an eight-week series that explored
topics that define who we are as a nation.
In support of the series, student newspapers were challenged by The
Globe to publish and submit their own content on the topics covered by
"Canada: Our Time to Lead" for a chance to have an article published on
The Globe's website and a working visit from John Stackhouse to their
"I'm thrilled to be recognized by The Globe and Mail, and it's a great
honour for The Martlet to have one of our articles shared with over one
million readers," said Karas. "We plan to keep John Stackhouse very
busy when he visits our newsroom."
