The Lone Star recognized by Columbia Scholastic Press Association...
Congratulations to our James Bowie High School yearbook, The Lone Star! The 2017 yearbook has been selected for one of the most prestigious awards for excellence in student publishing, the Columbia Scholastic Press Association Gold Crown Award. Just 59 schools across the United States will receive the award this year. The Lone Star is one of 12 schools in Texas named, and one of three in Central Texas. The Colubmia Scholastic Press Association explains:
"The Crown Awards honor top student publications chosen from CSPA’s members. Crowns are selected for overall excellence in a head-to-head comparison. Student publishing in news, magazine, yearbook or digital (online) formats are all eligible. During Crown consideration, publications are judged on their excellence as shown by their design, photography, concept, coverage and writing. A total of 1,100 publications were eligible for judging.
"Crown Finalists are actual winners, not nominees. Some will be announced as Gold Crowns; the rest are Silver Crowns. Final results will be announced and presented at the CSPA ceremonies in March 2018."
