As this is the first student journalism competition hhspress.org has entered, the news of the award came as a happy surprise to the staff.

HHS teacher Fred Haas, who co-teaches journalism with Sterling Worrell, stated, “HHS students continue to show exceptional growth, producing work of recognized merit. In fact, we even have student work occasionally picked up and republished by local media outlets, like HopNews, Hopkinton Patch, and Metrowest Daily News.”

HHSPress was compared to over 40 student newspapers from high schools in the greater Boston area. The award won was judged on the written content. All other awards competed for in the competition were based on writing, with the exception of an award for general excellence, which was won by Newton South High’s Lion’s Roar online student newspaper.
