The Write Stuff

High school student journalists were recognized with top honors and several Quill Awards at this year’s Press Day, held on March 9 at Adelphi University.
Among the awardees was Michael Fasanella, who earned second place for his feature article “Giving Hope to Ghana,” and Cameron Heaney, who won honorable mention for a sports column. Both pieces were included in the school’s newspaper, The Tide.

More than 20 Long Island schools participated in the event. In addition to the award presentations, students took part in discussions about the role of media in today’s society and politics.
