Two Kansas student digital publications have been named finalists for Pacemaker awards by the National Scholastic Press Association.
- The Shawnee Mission East Harbinger Online was named a national online Pacemaker finalist. The Harbinger is one of just 37 news websites to earn the distinction and one of only 18 that come from schools with enrollments of 1,500 students or fewer. Logan Heley, Patrick McGannon and Maggie Simmons serve as the publication’s editors, and C. Dow Tate is their adviser.
- The Crusader from Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School earned Pacemaker finalist recognition in the Digital Yearbook category. Riley Tigert is the editor, and Ashley Perkins is the adviser. Only eight schools nationally received recognition.
The NSPA will announce national winners on April 16 at the semi-annual convention in Anaheim, Calif.
