Journalism: The National Scholastic Press Association announced finalists for the Pacemaker, largely considered the Pulitzer Prize for scholastic journalism. The Dispatch was named a finalist for the second year in a row. This award is named after the calendar year for the publications, so the papers produced for this award were last year. The editors were Abby Ong, Cianna Chariez, Jocelyn Brooks and Madison Rice.
Winners will be announced in mid-November at the Fall National Journalism Convention in Washington, D.C. Only 49 schools, in 14 states across the country were named finalists, and nineteen will be named Pacemaker winners.
