8 journalism students place at regional competition

Eight WHS journalism students placed in 11 events at the Kansas Scholastic Press Association regional contest February 28.

In the writing contests, students are given quotes and information and must write a story in 90 minutes. The copy editing contest included a short test and a story to comment on.

Sophomore Emma Frey placed first in the editorial writing competition.

“Our students write a lot of stories throughout the year, which really prepares them for this competition,” newspaper adviser Brendan Praeger said.

The students will participate at state May 4 at KU.
