Locust Valley High School students have excelled on a national level once again by winning three awards from the American Scholastic Press Association.

The LVHS newspaper, The Spectrum, took first place with a gold medal, while the high school Yearbook, Trident, and the Literary Magazine, Perspective, each won a silver medal for second place. Taking first and second place in this competition is quite an honor, as the association reviews each publication in its entirety - judging the layout, writing, and photography.

"These awards illustrate the fantastic achievement that happens when students and teachers combine pride in their school with love of writing and publishing," stated Edward Cannone, Coordinator of ELA for the district.

Congratulations to the staff of each publication and to their advisors, Coleen Comerford for The Spectrum, Tom Camilleri for Trident, and Amy Rosenbaum for Perspective.
