Journalism Students Receive National Honors
The nearly 100-year old international honor society for journalism, Quill & Scroll, recently awarded three Minnehaha Academy students with honors for their writing, and also honored the team (with a special nod to Annika Johnson) for their Feature Page Design.
Each year, Quill and Scroll's Writing, Photo, and Multimedia Contest offers 1st through 3rd place honors as well as several honorable mentions. Based at the University of Iowa's journalism school, the contest had more than 2,500 entries this year.
First, congratulations to Annika Johnson who led the team for the "100 Years of Student Journalism" story. They received second place.
Congratulations to the following Minnehaha Academy students who received honorable mentions in this year's contest:
- Tennyson Shultz, Health, Science and Agriculture Writing (freshman)
