Evanstonian Takes Gold at NISPA Awards

At its awards ceremony last month, the Northern Illinois Scholastic Press Association (NISPA) awarded a Gold Certificate and a Golden Eagle to The Evanstonian, the newspaper of Evanston Township High School. The Golden Eagle is presented for "overall excellence" and is the highest level of distinction that NISPA awards.

Blue ribbons went to Martin Fenn for sports writing, Anna Nelson for photography and Abby Baum, for graphics.

Several staff members also received honorable mention for their work: Alex Heuer, news writing; Dalya Sohl, feature writing; Zoinab Khon, Mamie Tabet and Caroline Vakil, editorials; Grace Busko-Clark, Linnea Lipson and Adele Gruner, team in-depth reporting; and Milo Krimstein, reviews and editorial cartooning.

After capturing the 2014 Journalism Sectionals, "Evanstonian" staff members placed second in the Journalism State competition.

Abby Baum placed first in newspaper design, and Caroline Vakil, placed first in headline writing. "Evanstonian" staff member Rena Newman placed first in editorial cartoons, Camille Bates placed fourth in advertising; and Rebecca Suennen placed sixth in yearbook double-page spread design.

Almost 70 schools qualified for this year’s state competition, said Rodney Lowe, "Evanstonian" adviser. Downers Grove North won with a score of 29 points, and ETHS followed with a score of 27 points.
