The Columbia Scholastic Press Association recently named South Pasadena High School’s Tiger Newspaper as a 2018 Crown Award recipient. Tiger’s print, online, and social media platforms were among 47 high schools in the “hybrid” category selected for the award. Roughly 8,000 schools competed to be selected for this honor.
CSPA is an international student press association, founded in 1925, whose goal is to unite student journalists and faculty advisers at schools and colleges through educational conferences, idea exchanges, textbooks, critiques and award programs.
A panel of Crown Judges assembles each year at Columbia University to view all entrants, whether they are newspaper, magazines, yearbooks or online media. Judges are experienced former advisers to student media, professional journalists who understand student media or professionals such as photographers or online specialists with particular expertise needed for the judging exercise.
Congratulations to the Tiger Newspaper staff and faculty adviser, Mike Hogan, for this prestigious honor and for their outstanding work.
