"Android competition winners announced," Maneater, May 12, 2011.

The winners of the Reynolds Journalism Institute Hearst Student Competition were announced Thursday morning as part of this year’s RJI Student Innovator Showcase.

Adobe, Google and Sprint worked with Hearst and RJI to sponsor the competition. Students worked in teams of five to create journalism applications for the Android operating system.

Students came from several disciplines, including journalism, business, math, information technology and computer science.

“This is just really unique and special to bring together business, computer science and journalism students all together to work on solving real world business issues and come up with product ideas,” Hearst Innovation Vice President Beth Polish said in the presentation. “It’s pretty unique. I’ve yet to see anything quite like it.”
