It's that time of year again...


Once again, the Park School's student media have taken top honors in both regional and national competitions, besting some of the largest and most prestigious comm schools in the country. We're used to it, I know, but I never stop being amazed at the quality and professionalism of our guys really are the best.

And to prove it:

A summary of the Ithacan's latest achievements from Michael Serino:

It is my pleasure to announce that The Ithacan was presented with two
Silver Crown Awards by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association and
an "Apple Award" for Best of Show at the Spring College Media
Convention in New York City on March 17.

The Gold and Silver Crowns are the top honors awarded to college
newspapers by the CSPA. The awards were for issues produced during
the fall 2005 and spring 2006 semesters; Elizabeth Quill ’06 was the
paper's editor in chief during that period.

The "Apple Award" is the convention's Best of Show award, presented
in various categories for newspapers, magazines and yearbooks. The
Ithacan has won this award four times in the six years it has been
offered. This year's winning entry was produced during the fall
semester under the editorship of Vanessa Schneider ’07.

In addition, Chris Baxter ’07 won a Certificate of Merit for News
Feature Writing for Newspapers and Alejandro de los Rios ’07 won a
Certificate of Merit for Sports Column Writing for Newspapers in
CSPA's Gold Circle Awards.

Please join me in congratulating our students on their latest
