The State newspaper's journalistic quality has been recognized repeatedly across the country and state, most recently as one of the top 10 in the country for sports, features and business sections. The paper also has won awards for watchdog journalism, including the Associated Press Managing Editors First Amendment award for articles detailing the unauthorized public spending for the excavation, recovery and preservation of a sunken Confederate submarine, the H.L. Hunley. Our strengths are in our outstanding journalism covering local news, University of South Carolina and Clemson athletics, and state and local politics.
