Members of Lynbrook High School’s newspaper Horizon continued to make their mark this year during Adelphi University’s Press Day. The students earned top awards for their talents during the annual Quill Awards portion of the day. While competing against 25 schools from across Long Island and the tri-state area, the Horizon staff took home first and second place awards in five out of the six categories that they submitted entries into.
Each participating school was limited to enter six of the 15 award categories with only one nominee in each category. The Horizon staff earned first place for Most Outstanding Newspaper and second place for Best Online Newspaper. Individual award winners included Emily Bergin who earned the Most Outstanding Reporter award for a portfolio of her work, Jane Hoeflinger who received second place for Best News Article for her story, “A Grand Homecoming for Aidan Slattery” and Christian Squitieri who took home second place in the Best Photograph category for his piece, “Top Moments in Lynbrook Sports.”
Congratulations to the entire Horizon staff and Horizon adviser Jessica Sanders on another successful competition!
