The Westword and The Westword Online were awarded Gold Medals by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s Annual High School Journalism Review for the 2014 school year.
The Westword was critiqued by judges and earned 942 points out of a possible 1,000 from Columbia, earning all-Columbian Honors in two of the three categories for earning a score higher than 95% of the possible points.
“The Westword staff, which comprises nearly 100 students, puts in long hours to provide the most comprehensive and relevant coverage of the events that affect our community,” said Westhill High School English Teacher and The Westword Advisor David Wooley. “They provide an invaluable public service and it is good to see them recognized and awarded for their hard work and commitment to excellence.”
Westword you Make us Westhill and Proud!
