Hampton Bays High School student journalists were recognized with top honors and several Quill Awards at this year’s Press Day, held Jan. 28 at Adelphi University. 

Among the awardees was Dylynn von Bartheld, who earned an honorable mention as most outstanding reporter; Julia Heming, who was honored with a third-place award for best news article; Kiera Hughes, who placed third in the opinion category; and Schuyler Dorchak, who placed third for best feature. All of the winning pieces had been published in the school’s newspaper publication, The Tide. 

More than 20 schools from across Long Island participated in the event. In addition to the award presentations, students took part in discussions about “fake news” and other problems facing contemporary journalists.

The Hampton Bays School District extends its congratulations to these student journalists for their hard work.
