Two students from Stony Brook’s School of Communication and Journalism (SoCJ) won Hearst Journalism Awards for video storytelling and feature writing. 

Rafael Fonseca Cruvinel, a senior, placed 11th of the top 20 winners in the country for his feature story on pop culture’s influence on Oheka Castle. 

Recent graduate Justin Mitselmakher also placed 11th out of 20 in the multimedia narrative storytelling category for his video on the history of HIV/AIDS in the U.S., as told through the eyes of a New Yorker.
