SHS's newspaper, Spri-Hian, proudly took first place in the American Scholastic Press Association's (ASPA) annual contest for high school newspapers for the second year in a row.
The Spri-Hian is Springfield High School's student-run newspaper since 1932 and has been published by the Springfield School District with the purpose to inform and entertain the student body of Springfield High School.
Advisor Michael Cianfrani says, "Our kids work hard and give it their best every day. As you know, the challenges of publishing anything can be very daunting for teenagers. From brainstorming to final edits, our students tackle these challenges beyond the expectations of a high school journalist."
The Spri-Hian was judged among other high school newspapers in the county for its page design, story layout, graphics, headlining, cover design and photography. The ASPA newspaper judge stated our student writers should be commended for their "attention to detail, the layout and for creating a large publication."
