The 2017 Student Keystone Press Awards were recently announced, and six Baldwin students were recognized with four awards for their efforts with the School’s newspaper The Hourglass. These awards recognize high school and college journalism that provides relevance, integrity and initiative in serving readers.
Our Baldwin students swept the General News category. Winning first place were Editors-in-Chief Jane Bradley ’17 and Sanjana Friedman ’17 for their article titled “Baldwin Reacts to Trump's Win.” Winning second place was Jessica Zhang ’17 for her article titled “Americans, Divided: What do People Really Think of the Election?” And winning honorable mention was Melia Hagino ’18 for her article titled “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.” In addition, Sabrina Rustgi ’18 and Pallavi Sreedhar ’17 won second place in the Layout and Design category for page 12 of the November 2016 edition.
“I am so very excited for all our students and so proud of them,” says Dr. Diane Senior, chair of the English department and faculty adviser for The Hourglass. “Sanji and Jane have been the editors-in-chief for two years, but they normally don’t write together. Their winning piece was the cover story after President Trump’s win, and they had very little time to write it. While beautifully framed, the article is largely comprised of student quotations. The students' voices resound as thoughtful, intelligent, inclusive, and empathetic. Seeing them win together after working so hard together is gratifying. Next week they will produce their last Hourglass issue of a two-year run as editors-in-chief before handing over the reins to next year’s team for the final issue of the year.”
