Each spring the Rammie Awards honor the best in student radio, television and newspaper journalism. Students nominate their best work. Nominations are reviewed by a panel of media professionals who select the winners.
Students produce and host the award ceremony which occurs during the annual mass communications conference. The show is taped for later broadcast on RAM-TV21 student television. The first Rammies were awarded in 2002.

The award, established in memory of an exceptional 2001 graduate, recognizes outstanding scholarship and service to the club and the department.
Steven Gaither ('08) cradles two Rammies he won for his journalistic skills. He was also the recipient of the 2007 Stephen A. Smith Award as the department's top student journalist. The award was established by the WSSU Association of Black Journalists to honor the 1992 graduate who has become a nationally renowned sports journalist and media personality.
