The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School student newspaper won top honors last weekend in the New England Scholastic Press Association’s scholastic journalism competition.
For the third time in six years, The High School View finished in first place in the All-New England category (Division III) in the press association’s annual competition.
At the organization’s annual conference and awards ceremony at Boston University last weekend, NESPA executive director Helen Smith presented the award to student editors-in-chief EmmaJean Holley and Warren Gowell. Dan Sharkovitz is the newspaper’s faculty adviser.
For the seventh consecutive year, the student newspaper earned NESPA’s Highest Achievement Award in Scholastic Editing and Publishing, a state-level award that is required to move on for consideration in the All-New England category.
Students EmmaJean Holley, Lily Bick, and Everett Monroe won awards for their individual journalism pieces.
Technology teacher Al Mahoney and his Web Design class are collaborating with the journalism students to develop an online, digital version of the student newspaper to go along with its print edition.
