It’s just a literary week at Standing O! St. Edmund Prep earned two major awards from the American Scholastic Press Association for Equinox for its literary magazine, “New Beginnings Through Fire and Flood” and its 2013 yearbook edition of the Canterburian.
New Beginnings chronicled the effects of Superstorm Sandy and its effects on the members of the St. Edmund school community. The first place award won for design, layout, and creativity among New York high schools. The editorial staff included Camilla Piechocki, Nicole Thurgood, Naomi Charles, and Brianna DeMorcey.
The Canterburian, which placed third among high schools, highlighted the 80th anniversary of the school and focused on the many events that celebrated the milestone anniversary. The award was presented for presentation, content, and originality.
Staffers working on the edition included Jessica Pinto, Clare Ryan, John Carucci, Stephanie Fox, Lauren Monopoli, Matt Dalto, and Nicole Thurgood.
English teachers Jim Grillo and Susan Moquin lend their expertise and advice to the future Pulitzer winners.
Standing O feels secure that these talented and literary aces will carry the torch of reporting the news long into the future.
