The Kansas Scholastic Press Association congratulates Maize Middle School student Aiden Werner on winning the statewide honor of the 2018 Mary Patrick Aspiring Journalist Award. Werner works on Maize’s broadcast shows and has learned how to mix and create various types of videography.

In May, Werner will be recognized at KSPA’s state conference in Lawrence. He also has the opportunity to submit his materials to the national conference. Werner also earns a scholarship to a summer journalism workshop in Kansas during his time in or before high school.

Aiden Werner: Mary Patrick Aspiring Young Journalist Award

  • School: Maize Middle School, Maize, Kansas
  • Adviser: Monty Schreiner

    Aiden Werner works on the Maize Middle School broadcast show.

Werner’s application showcases his talent in broadcast coverage and creating weather script and video. The judges repeatedly commended Werner on his strong role in journalism through speaking in front of others and building teamwork.

The judges reviewed Werner’s application and provided these compliments:

  • “Aiden is FANTASTIC in front of the camera. He has a solid understanding of how to deliver a newscast. His inflection is great and keeps the viewer engaged.”
  • “His portfolio shows a good understanding news that is relevant to his audience and skill in delivering it clearly. His supporting documents also show a student who understands the importance of journalism and that he is truly learning life skills, not simply how to produce broadcast news.”

In his essay of application, Werner wrote about his love for writing stories and sharing them through means of journalism outlets, such as broadcast:

“I believe that I deserve this award because I love writing stories inside and outside of school. This reward would mean a lot for me because I love making stories, but I never get a chance to share them other than during Broadcast.”

The board and staff of KSPA congratulate Aiden Werner on his award-winning application and portfolio.
