Competing against SCC for awards were Transylvania University, Kentucky State University, Lindsey Wilson College and Georgetown College. Papers published in 2012 were judged.

“The Bridge” was led by Matt Attaway, the Spring semester 2012 managing editor, and Cynthia Turner, the Fall semester 2012 managing editor. Turner currently serves as editor of the paper. Faculty advisors for the paper are Jeff Harris and Stuart Simpson.
