BIC journalism students excel at yearbook contest
Members of the BIC journalism staff have earned eight awards in the Quill and Scroll International Honor Society for High School Journalists' 2014 Yearbook Excellence Contest. Over 1,600 entries were received in the competition, and only 217 national winners were named.
Greydon Williams was named the sweepstakes winner in the academic photo contest, and Daniel Carmichael was the sweepstakes winner for the student life photo category. They received plaques in addition to Gold Key awards. Their photos were deemed by the judges to be the best of all the winners in their respective categories for the B category of schools (high school enrollment of 749 or less).
In addition to these awards, Williams received a Gold Key in the sports action photo category. Gold Keys were also earned by Camden Metheny in the clubs photo, feature photo and sports action photo categories and Victoria Perez in the student life layout and feature photo categories.
"I'm thrilled with my students' performance in this year's Quill and Scroll awards," adviser Tracey Yates Thompson said. "Last year was our first time to participate in this contest, and we were happy to win one award. Winning eight including two sweepstakes awards is beyond my expectations and a reflection of the staff's talent and dedication."
