Staff reports

Cleveland Publications won seven awards at the Washington Journalism Education Association State Competition in Puyallup on Saturday.

The staff walked away with a Superior Award, the highest honor, in Emerging Technology. Their use of social media and interactive graphics on the website earned high reviews, with judges calling it “current and pleasing to the eye.”

Two photographers, seniors Linda Chen and Kassie Villars walked away with Excellent Awards in Sports Photography, while Amanda Nguyen earned an Honorable Mention for Copy Editing. Our illustration team of Kenisha Rullan, Joshua Elaydo and Athena Tong earned honorable mention in Visual Communication.

But it was our video team that walked away with multiple broadcasting awards. The Eagle News Network (ENN) earned Excellent honors in Sports Broadcasting, Newscast and Feature videos. Those teams are led by Aileen Isla and Tyvon Tabadero.

Cleveland Publications is under the leadership of Media teacher Teresa Scribner.

Cleveland Publications has come a long way since mergering newspaper and yearbook two years ago. Anyone interested in signing up for this award-winning staff should see Scribner when option sheets go out later this month.
