Last week, Jesuit High School's student newspaper, The Jesuit Chronicle, was named a Distinguished Site for online news for high school journalism in the U.S. by School News Online(SNO). The Distinguished Site Award recognizes news staff's excellence in six aspects of online publishing: continuous coverage, site excellence, audience engagement, story page design, writing, and multimedia.
Over the past year, The Jesuit Chronicle has earned recognition from SNO in individual areas of online publishing. Each recognition is called a digital badge and is displayed at the top of the news site. Last year, only 63 other schools across the nation earned all six digital badges and recognition as a Distinguished Site.
"Beyond The Jesuit Chronicle, jesuitnews.com focuses on bringing together student news from the whole community," said journalism teacher Dan Falkner. "This recognition from SNO would not have been possible without the contributions from not only the Jesuit Chronicle news staff, but also students in JCTV with their work in pre-recorded and live broadcasts."
