The pandemic could not stop Horizon, Lynbrook High School’s student-run newspaper, from garnering awards at Adelphi University’s Press Day and Quill Awards. Fifteen Horizon members, including adviser Jessica Sanders, recently attended the virtual event where Horizon members proudly took home four awards.
The entire Horizon staff received third place in the “Most Outstanding Newspaper” category for their print and online publication. Juniors Julia Swerdin and Ronan Mansfield took home third place in two individual categories. Julia was recognized in the “Most Outstanding Reporter” category for her portfolio, while Ronan was awarded for “Best Visual (Photograph or Artwork)” for his illustration “The Pandemic Through the Eyes of an ER Nurse.” In addition, junior Sophie Ward received the honorable mention award for “Best News Article” about Class Night 2020.
Horizon competed against approximately 25 schools from across Long Island and the tri-state area. Each school was limited to enter six of the 9 award categories with only one nominee in each category. The Lynbrook Public Schools congratulates the Horizon staff on this outstanding achievement.
