North Country Public Radio’s news team is the recipient of two national awards for broadcast journalism.
The Radio and Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) has named NCPR the 2005 recipient of a national Edward R. Murrow Award for broadcast excellence. NCPR’s news team was selected for their outstanding continuing coverage of the Iraq war. NCPR was a recent regional Murrow Award winner for the same coverage. Regional winners are automatically entered into the national award competition. Seventy-five national winners were chosen from a pool of 3,390 entries.


Science Project Update
Bench tops for laboratories in the Sarah Johnson Redlich'82 Hall of Science will be made of durable and chemical-resistant epoxy resin. We have chosen a gray color to reflect light in the lab (as opposed to the standard black tops that absorb light). The gray is light enough to hide any potential scratches but dark enough to see Bunsen burner flames and spilled chemical powders. Stains (often occurring in chemistry and biology research) are also easily cleaned from the epoxy surface.
