Paso Robles High School’s journalism program got a boost this month when its news magazine, “Crimson,” placed sixth in the Best of Show competition at the National High School Journalism Convention in Seattle.
The magazine was the top California news magazine in its category.
Additionally, two Paso High students received individual honors. Senior Amanda Hutchinson took first place for newspaper layout, and sophomore Sydney Matteson placed third for infographic design.
“Crimson” is the print product assembled by the school’s 27-student journalism program. It has placed in Best of Show competitions for the past five years.
Teacher Jeff Mount serves as an adviser to the publication, while students Megan Rodrigues and Katie Wingfield act as chief editor and managing editor, respectively.
