WALL recently received top honors in a national competition for community college literary magazines. The American Scholastic Press Association, which annually honors excellence in campus publications, selected the 2017 edition of WALL as Most Outstanding Community College Literary-Art Magazine as well as recognizing the journal with a First Place with Special Merit award for excellence in content and design. The judges cited the "superior efforts" of the journal staff and described it as "a model for up-and-coming magazines." Since 2012, ASPA has recognized WALL with First Place awards in its annual contest.
The 2016 issue of WALL was honored with a Second Place Award for Best Magazine in another national literary magazine competition sponsored by the Community College Humanities Association.
