Journalism Awards

Estephanie Jimenez, Editor

On Monday, May 22, 2017 the Journalism class will attend the 41st Las Vegas Review Journal’s High School Journalism Award Ceremony. It is a privilege for A-TECH to attend this ceremony since this event is by invitation only and costs absolutely nothing to attend. There are about 300 people, both students and their advisors, who attend the ceremony.

Journalism classes across the valley submit their writing pieces. One of the positive aspects about the submissions is that all entries are given feedback on how to improve for their school newspaper.

The Las Vegas Review Journal’s High School Journalism Award Ceremony is initially a contest where eligible schools are allowed to enter two submissions per category. The purpose of this event is to recognize the work of excellent journalism students in the Clark County School District.

The Maverick Pulse, A-TECH’s school online newspaper, has submitted a total of 31 entries for 16 categories this school year. These entries involve both cub reporters and staff writers.

Keep your fingers crossed for the Maverick Pulse!
