Journalism class earns second place ranking in Scholastic Press Association annual contest


Tara Meany, Academic Life Editor

This year’s Journalism class and Newspaper Club have all the reason to celebrate after their first time submitting work to the annual Scholastic Press Association Annual Contest. Competing against high schools with similar amounts of students, they ranked in second place overall in their category.
This is a major feat for a small group that works hard to compile an enjoyable newspaper for the student population at West Milford High School.
In addition to their second place win, they also received a special commendation for Outstanding Community Service in regards to their organizing a very successful book drive for an elementary school in Paterson this past winter.
The group was immensely proud of the hard work and dedication that has gone into the process of publishing a school paper.
For next year they set their goals higher as they always strive to meet the expectations and interests of the students at West Milford High School. They will strive earnestly for a first place ranking for the annual competition next year.
Help is always welcomed, no matter how much journalistic writing experience one has had, so consider signing up for the Journalism class or joining the Newspaper Club to contribute to the fun. We are in particular need of sports writers, so if you would like your team to be featured in the paper, come join us!
