Students Josh Reaney, Tom Wood and Paul Stimpson have earned praise for their reporting of Sheffield and Hallamshire County Football Association’s cup finals.
The matches are the climax of the season and included junior and senior games for both men and women’s teams.
Venues included non-league grounds as well as Bramall Lane and Hillsborough.
Marketing manager Richard Finney said the students had done a fantastic job.
“They worked early mornings and late nights and just got on with it. They did research before the games and used their initiative,” he said.
Josh, Tom and Paul had their work printed on the association’s website and in the Sheffield Star.
