Local Student Writers
Four high school student journalists will be honored when supporters of the award-winning, nonprofit education newspaper Philadelphia Public School Notebook gather for their annual end-of-school-year celebration “Turning the Page for Change.” Community leaders, District officials, educators, education advocates, parents, students and other members of the community will join the Notebook for an evening of food, entertainment by student musicians and caricaturists, and recognition of school newspaper staff.
This year, 11 schools entered their student news publications in the Notebook’s competition. The winners will win a cash prize and an E-tablet, courtesy of our student journalism award partners, AL DIA News and IKEA South Philadelphia. One of our winners is Northeast’s Trevor Wuest for outstanding multimedia piece: “What are the Benefits of Karate?”, Rush Reporting, Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush.
