Arnold Award, which is named after the man that is considered the creator of modern newspaper design, from the S.I.

This prestigious award is given to sophomores and juniors who major in graphic design, newspaper, online journalism, photojournalism and magazine, and Azar is a graphic design major at the university, the Patch reports.

"I'm a web designer by nature," Azar told the news source. "I'm really interested in innovative news design."

This summer Azar has an internship with the Washington Post Company's WaPo Labs.
