‘‘I am always so proud of our media students when it comes to the state awards. This year the entries we were able to send were cut down significantly due to a shortened school year so I had no idea how it would go, but it worked out well for our kids. I am especially proud of our first place finishers in so many categories, it is a great reward for all their hard work,’’ said Media Adviser Heather Nichols.
