From staff reports
The fifth edition of "Soul of Athens," the annual award-winning digital publication created by students at Ohio University's Scripps School of Communication launched on June 1.
The "Soul of Athens" strives to set the bar for visual, multimedia storytelling, competing with the biggest names in the field.
This year, instead of looking inward at what makes the Athens county community unique, the students looked outward, regionally examining the changing American Dream — what it was, what it has become, and the myths and realities of it's unending pursuit. By telling these stories from here in southeast Ohio, they aimed to help folks better understand our country, our communities, our neighbors and ourselves.
