ONA exercise: You be the judge!

For this assignment, you will assume the role of a judge at the Online News Association awards. You will be assigned a specific category to review. You will use a scorecard to review each site in your category, and you will write a final recommendation in which you choose a winner and justify your choice.  You will publish your review, recommendation, and rationale on your blog. Don’t just tell me who you selected – tell me why you made your choice. Use the criteria in the scorecard to justify your choice. I will judge your review based on variety (are you taking a variety of factors into account, from the quality of journalism to design to community engagement, etc.) and on specificity (are you using specific examples to back up your decision).

Due date: Midnight 10/27

Keep a printout of the scorecard for each site. I will collect them in class at a later date.
