Convent of the Sacred Heart, Greenwich recently announced that the Columbia Scholastic Press Association awarded a gold medal to the King Street Chronicle for the 2013-1014 academic year.

This is the second year that the Upper School’s student newspaper has been in an online format.

Additionally, the scoring was such that the newspaper also achieved All-Columbian status. According to the Columbia criteria, those publications which score in the 95th percentile achieve this prestigious level.

In the critique, the judges state: “It is obvious how much hard work and time are devoted to the multiple elements of the King StreetChronicle. It’s obvious that there is a strong spirit and tradition in your school community and that the staff has pride and a dedicated work ethic.

“You can be very proud of producing an online newspaper that provides a service to your school by both informing and entertaining your readers.

“The quality of the publication is outstanding; your strengths include: the writers are excellent; there is something for every reader and the stories hold the reader’s attention from the lead to the end. The visual appeal of this web site is very good.”

“It is an honor for me to work with such a dedicated and talented group of student-journalists and to have the opportunity to contribute to this outstanding student-centered program,” said journalism teacher Matilde Larson.
