The Liberty University Selah Yearbook has once again gained national recognition.

For the third year in a row, Selah was presented with a Silver Crown by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, making Liberty's yearbook one of only nine collegiate yearbooks to receive a crown. The award was for the issue “Risk, refinement,” released in May 2009.

The book also claimed the College Media Advisers' Apple Award for "Best in Print" in its division, the fifth consecutive honor for Selah.

The Associated Collegiate Press also named the 2009 edition as a Pacemaker finalist, placing Liberty's yearbook among the top in the country for the second consecutive year.
