WCC Newspaper Takes First Place In National Press Review
Windward Community College’s Ka ‘Ohana likes to keep it in the family — all the awards, that is.
The student-run newspaper recently took first place in American Scholastic Press Association’s annual review of national student newspapers.
“We try to uphold the highest standards of good journalism: to promote awareness of issues and to share stories that can inspire everyone on campus,” stated adviser Libby Young, a WCC journalism professor.
The paper scored 930 out of 1,000 points, earning it first-place honors alongside 144 other high schools and colleges across the country. This is the 13th time the school has won the top spot in ASPA’s competition.
Established in 1973, Ka ‘Ohana is produced by students enrolled in WCC’s Journalism 285 and 205 courses, with a monthly circulation of 2,000 during the fall and spring semesters.
