High School Journalism Network Holds 2018 Awards Dinner

SCOE Hosts Sac County Breeze Student Writers

Lauren Gustus and Camryn Dadey

Lauren Gustus, Vice President and Regional Editor of The Sacramento Bee, presents Laguna Creek High School student Camryn Dadey with the Journalist of the Year award for 2018.

Excellence in high school journalism was honored last night as the Sacramento High School Journalism Network (SHSJN) held its 7th Annual awards dinner.

SHSJN is a project of the California Scholastic Journalism Initiative, in collaboration with The Sacramento Bee and the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE). The program was started with funding from former newspaper publisher Rowland “Reb” Rebele, a First Amendment advocate and philanthropist.

Students write stories for the Sac County Breeze newspaper, a regional high school project sponsored by SCOE, the SHSJN, and The Sacramento Bee. The stories are reviewed by a team of writing coaches. Professional journalists serve as mentors and support the students in the classroom. SHSJN also provides monitoring for the teachers, free curriculum materials, and access to scholastic journalism resources.
