The NSPA just announced The Little Hawk as a finalist in the 2019 Pacemaker competition.

“I’m so proud of our staff for doing the work, showing up, and earning this honor,” Mira Bohannan Kumar ’20, executive editor of the paper, said. “I hope we’ll keep up the good work.”

Founded in 1921 the award has been presented for almost a century, The Little Hawk has won twelve Newspaper Pacemaker Awards and two Online Pacemakers. Only 44 high school publications were named Pacemaker finalists by the National Scholastic Press Association. The award is meant to honor the best student run publications in the country.

“Seeing hard work rewarded is always a good feeling. The staff worked really hard last year to tell all the stories of City High. It was great to see the Culture section highlight the diversity at City,” Jonathan Rogers, adviser of The Little Hawk said. “I also think The Little Hawk did a great job trying to be the number one source of news about City High. They embraced telling real stories with real quotes and photos. Being a trusted outlet is so important in the digital age.”
