Best Of High School Journalism Award Winners

Best Of High School Journalism Award Winners
The JerEcho took home the award for best online publication.

Last week, Anton Media Group published a story on the Best of High School Journalism Awards (“Media Matters,” April 5-11) at LIU Post on March 24. Due to the sheer number of awards presented, we could not include all winners with the feature story. In an effort to honor all of the young journalists, we present the winners, who were given awards after experiencing an interactive workshop at the LIU Post media facilities, with programs including WCWP radio station, PTV television studio, Pioneer newsroom and the public relations program.
