Savoir Faire, BPCC’s literary and art magazine, has won first place for Best Overall Magazine, Small Community Colleges, Southern Division of the U.S. from the Community College Humanities Association (CCHA).

The annual literary magazine competition, which highlights student work from all over the nation, reinforces the mission of CCHA to help shape and strengthen students with their personal and professional growth in the Humanities.

CCHA is proud to honor selected magazines in each of our five divisions. Selections are made based on college size and magazine budget; there are awards for both smaller schools and larger schools in each division. Awards for first through third place plus honorable mention are given each year in addition to an overall national award winner.

Faculty members John Wagoner and Katie Bickham serve as the co-editors for Savoir Faire.“We are very proud of the literary and visual work created by BPCC students in Savoir Faire,” says Wagoner. “Winning first place is reflective of the hard work and dedication that these students have put into their submissions. We look forward to receiving future submissions for the next issue of Savoir Faire.”
