Spreadsheet of 2022 Marian winners

First-place entries have advanced to the National Federation of Press Women Communication Contest.

NPW will present the students’ awards at our spring conference luncheon from on Saturday, April 23, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Best Western Plus in York. 

Certificates will be awarded in York, so temporary “ribbons” were created to distinguish the award-winners in the third floor hallway.

Congratulations, journalists!

Network Online Editor, Gianna Salerno.
