DURHAM, N.H. -- An article in the University of New Hampshire Magazine, written by co-associate editor Virginia Stuart of Durham, has received a national bronze medal for best article of the year. The article, “The Not-So-Elusive Modern Moose: Easy to find—but a challenge to manage,” appeared in the Spring 2005 edition of the magazine, and described how the state’s exploding moose population is providing UNH professors and students opportunities to study moose behavior and to test theories of moose management. It was selected from 265 entries in the Council for Advancement and Support of Education’s 2006 Circle of Excellence Awards.

UNH Magazine is published jointly by the UNH Alumni Association and the Office of the President.

In past years the magazine has received CASE gold medals for most improved magazine and for best magazine; a silver medal for best article of the year; and a bronze medal for best periodical staff writing.
