School newspaper given honors
Inklings, Staples High School's student-run newspaper, recently received three honors.
The journal has been named a 2013 National Scholastic Press Association Online Pacemaker finalist, according to the association's website. The publication is among 30 student-run newspapers at high schools with at least 1,500 pupils across the country that were chosen as finalists. The association would not disclose the number of entries.
The finalists from around the country were chosen by a team of three professionals assembled from around the county. Entries were judged over the course several weeks based on content, design, writing and editing, rich media and breaking news, the website said.
The publication was one of 22 papers across the country to receive a "High School Newspaper Silver Crown" and one of five papers to be given a "High School Digital Publication Silver Crown," according to the organization's website.
Inklings was chosen from a field of 1,344 school newspapers, online journals, magazines and newspapers nationwide, the website said. Publications were judged on writing and editing, design, content, concept, photography, art and graphics.
The paper's staff members include Ned Hardy and Rachel Guetta, co-editors-in-chief; Ben Reiser and Chloe Baker, print managing editors; and Cheyenne Haslet and Jordan Shenhar, web managing editors. The faculty advisors are Stephen Rexford, Julia McNamee, Mary Fulco and Anne Fernandez.
