BHS's Student Magazine Wins Top Prize in National Contest
By: Robert Parris
Burlington High School’s student publication has been honored with a top prize in a national contest.
BHS’s magazine Collab has, for the first time in its history, been named a Most Outstanding High School Literary-Art Magazine by the American Scholastic Press Association in its annual contest/review of yearbooks and magazines.
“We are very excited to have been given this recognition,” said Collab advisor Benjamin Lally in a blog post. “Congratulations to the editing staff, the writers, and the artists who helped make this happen.”
This honor went to only 13 high school magazines across the country in 2016. Other schools that were honored were Aquila Bentley School in Lafayette, California, Yeshiva University Girls High School in Los Angeles, California, and Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Bethesda, Maryland.
The award measures the strength of the artistic and literary content of the magazine, as well as the magazine’s professional layout.
