Fall Press Day 2011 Best of Show Winners
Journalism is alive and well, judging by the excellent writing, design and photography of student media entered in the 26th annual Best of Show competition at Fall Press Day sponsored by Northwest Scholastic Press.
Judges were impressed by the attention to detail in writing and editing, design and layout, photography, and newscasting. Awards were given to Oregon’s outstanding student media.
Two new contests, newscasts and websites, were added to the competition to reflect the changing nature of scholastic media in Oregon. A number of sessions focused on adding multimedia to school web sites, as well as how to get started. NWSP will focus on helping members get up and running with news web sites this year.
School media were judged by school size and OSAA division this year, and included 1-3A, 4A and 5A divisions. Not all categories had entries this year.
