The Davis High School newspaper, The HUB, has been awarded a newspaper Pacemaker in the broadsheet (9-12 pages) category.
Bestowed by the National Scholastic Press Association, the Pacemaker is the top honor for high school newspapers in the country. Editors Daniel Tutt, Emily Gao, Boyoung Kim and Kelly Goss, as well as DHS journalism adviser Kelly Wilkerson, were recognized for their work.
Judges select Pacemaker winners based on coverage and content, quality of writing and reporting, leadership on the opinion page, evidence of in-depth reporting, design, photography, art and graphics.
The 2012 NSPA awards also acknowledged high school journalists across the country for their academic success. Among those honored for having worked on a member publication for two or more years, with at least one year in an editorial position, and maintained a gpa or 3.75 or higher, were DHS students journalists Lauren Blackwell and Anna Sturla.
