Last weekend, the National Scholastic Press Association awarded Harker Aquila, Harker’s online student news site, with its first Online Pacemaker Award for schools with an enrollment of fewer than 1,500 students. The Pacemaker is a national honor that also is awarded to student newspapers, yearbooks, magazines and broadcast reports. Winners for these categories are still to be determined.
Journalism’s success didn’t stop there. The Winged Post, the upper school student newspaper, took third place in Best of Show for newspaper broadsheets of 17 or more pages in length.
