Eagle Eye news staff wins prestigious silver star award

 On May 10, the school newspaper received the Silver Star Award from the Interscholastic League Press Conference (ILPC). This award is the equivalent of a silver medal in UIL at the state level.

  “I’m so proud of the newspaper class and how hard they have worked this year,” newspaper adviser Neda Morrow said. “It takes a lot of time and energy to create an online magazine in addition to a print magazine.

  The ILPC is the the Texas organization for students to enter their publications such as magazines, newspapers and online newspapers.  When you enter the contest you get one of four ratings. This year, the online newspaper and all the staff members that created it got the highest rating.  When you get the highest rating, you get sent to a higher level of judging that no one else is. Getting a rating of gold, silver, or bronze means your staff is among the highest in the state.

  “They have worked really hard and really put together some excellent work especially in the realm of video editing and timely coverage,” Morrow said. “We’ve also done some great features this year. I’m so honored that the state recognized their hard work.”
