Both of Legend’s 2012 student publications, the yearbook and the newspaper, earned the top distinction of “All Colorado” in the state contest sponsored by the Colorado High School Press Association.
The award winning yearbook included elements such as an index of students, our first ever spread of senior photos, a chronological organization and the theme “Now.”
“Getting the award is a big deal, especially for a school as little known as ours,” said junior Diane Svistun, current yearbook staff member.
At their summer camp, the yearbook staff also picked up an award for the design of their upcoming book.
The staffs will receive their plaques at an awards ceremony during the state high school journalism day on Oct. 11 at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.
