The Kirkwood Call Online Edition is NSPA Online Pacemaker Finalist
The online news site of The Kirkwood Call student newspaper—thekirkwoodcall.com—has been announced as a Pacemaker Finalist in the 2012 National School Press Association (NSPA) Online Pacemaker competition. As a Pacemaker Finalist, The Kirkwood Call online news site is recognized as one of the top 16 high school websites in the country in category schools with a 1,500 or greater enrollment. Journalism teacher and publications adviser Mitch Eden credits the co-editors in chief Emily Goyda and Joe Weber, web editor Johnny Frohlichstein, and entire Call staff for their hard work and achievement.
A total of 159 high school websites from across the country entered the NSPA contest, and 31 sites were selected as finalists by a panel of new media experts from the Star Tribune. There are two categories for the Online Pacemaker Finalists: enrollment less than 1,500 and enrollment of 1,500 or greater. Entries were evaluated on content, design, navigation, writing and editing, rich media and breaking news. Winners will be announced at the spring Journalism Education Association/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention, April 12-15, in Seattle, Wash.
