MCHS student newspaper wins KHSJA awards

The Shield

 

The Marion County High School student newspaper, The Shield, recently claimed eight awards through the Kentucky High School Journalism Association’s 2018 contest.

“We had another very successful year with our entries,” The Shield advisor Jason Simpson said. “Much of that is because last year we had some very talented and dedicated students that took pride in the work they produced.”

MCHS competes in the KHSJA’s Class B, which includes high schools with enrollments between 701-1200.

The awards included a clean sweep of the newswriting category, with The Shield claiming first, second, and third place honors.

The winners include:

“I really think that printing a hard copy newspaper instead of solely an online version is important because it makes the work more tangible and real,” Simpson said. “So, we’re always looking for local businesses that would like to advertise with us so that we can continue to produce award-winning high school journalism.”
