Congratulations to the OVS high school student journalism program, which again took top honors at the Tri-Counties Journalism Educators Assn. live writing competition. The students won eight awards total, including second best overall of high school journalism programs in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. They also won more writing awards than any other school at the event.
“It was a great way to end the year,” said journalism teacher Fred Alvarez, whose students have outperformed their peers at much larger schools in each of the last four years of this competition. “We have a talented group of young writers and a program that just gets stronger. I’m excited for what they can continue to learn and accomplish in the years ahead.”
Check out the work of these talented writers at our Upper Campus on the student journalism website, On The Hill.
