Trinity’s Newspaper and Yearbook Staffs Honored at WKU Journalism Contest

A big congratulations to the ECHO newspaper and Shamrock yearbook staffs for bringing home three awards from the Western Kentucky University Mark of Excellence Journalism Contest.

ECHO staff senior Matthew Craven placed FIRST in News and Feature Photography.

The Shamrock yearbook placed SECOND for a Feature Story by Quinn Nickell ’22, and the Shamrock earned a THIRD for a Student Life Spread.

Great job, Journalism Rocks!

Some nice comments from the judges about Matthew’s and Quinn’s work:

News and Feature Photography Judge’s comments: A solid moment and an even better story told in the picture made by the first-place winner.

Feature Story Judge’s comments: All of the entries in the feature story category were great reads! It is clear in your writing that each of you has a passion for uplifting the stories within your schools and communities. This is especially true for the submissions from Sacred Heart Academy, Trinity High School and Franklin-Simpson High School. Firstly, these feature stories covered topics that were interesting and relevant to their specific audiences. By writing stories over topics that are engaging and relevant to their specific schools, these stories achieve the goal of yearbooks as a whole: to highlight the memorable experiences and characteristics of the schools they belong to. Additionally, these stories had strong writing and minimal grammatical errors. Through using clear, descriptive language and proper grammar, these writers painted a rich picture of the experiences within their stories and immersed the reader in those experiences. Congratulations to Sacred Heart Academy, Trinity High School, Franklin-Simpson High School, and all of the schools who submitted entries!
