The Pennsylvania Gazette has received awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) in three categories for 2002.

Two articles written by Gazette senior editor Samuel Hughes were included among the Best Articles of the Year, judged by CASE and the Chronicle of Higher Education. They are: "An Affair to Remember," which recounts the controversy and long-lasting impact of the firing of a Socialist-leaning Wharton School professor named Scott Nearing C'06 G'09 in 1915, won a Gold Medal. "Speech!" on linguist Noam Chomsky C'48 G'51 Gr'55 Hon'84 won a Silver Medal.

Those articles and three others ("Dinosaurs Lost and Found," by John Prendergast C'80; and "The Moral Classroom" and "The Particle Sleuths," by Susan Frith) earned the Gazette a Silver Medal for Periodical Staff Writing.

Finally, the Gazette won a Gold Medal for Visual Design in Print for the illustration accompanying the story, "Man of Letters."
