The New York Press Association recently awarded Kellenberg Senior Sierra Hajdu with a First Place award for her article concerning Hurricane Sandy, entitled “Storm Brings Pain. And Miracles”. The award from the NYPA came under the category of News Story, and the article clearly explains the storm, the aftermath, and the relief effort of members of the KMHS family. The NYPA comments, “The enormity of reporting on the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is brought to a personal level with numerous interviews and reports of relief efforts. The writer convinces the reader that within such a community, miracles are possible.”
In addition, Ryan Bannon won a Third Place award for Best Sports Story, entitled “Dilsia Bonilla Takes Home the Golden Gloves Championship.” This is the second award Ryan has won for this article.
