The Columbia Scholastic Press Association has awarded the Berkeley High Jacket Online its highest honor in high school journalism: the Gold Crown Award. 


The Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) is affiliated with Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, which "administers many professional awards in order to uphold standards of excellence in the media," including the prestigious Pulitzer Prize.

Along with the websites of ten other high school publications from across the country, the Jacket received a High School Online Gold Crown. Entries were evaluated at Columbia University this February by a panel of judges. Gold Crowns have been awarded to middle and high school newspapers, magazines, and yearbooks since 1982. This year's competition drew applications from more than 1,558 publications.

The Jacket's website was designed entirely from scratch at the start of the school year, and features the video segments produced by the paper's first multimedia editors, Danielle Escobar and Alec Mutter. Check out their incredible work at www.bhsjacket.com.
