The Bulldog Print, the student newspaper at Preston Hollow’s Yavneh Academy of Dallas was named the top paper for Class B schools – those with less than 2,000 students at The Dallas Morning News High School Journalism Day and Competition.

The Bulldog Print staff was judged on articles in the categories of hard news, sports, and features, as well as photos and graphics, and page layout.

The school’s paper is in only its second year of publication, and in addition to the DMN award, was named one of the nation’s top high school papers at the Journalism Education Association/National Scholastic Press Association conference in Philadelphia.

As a journalist who first cut his chops at the longest continually published high school newspaper in the state, I tip my cap to you, Bulldog Print staff.

The papers at Episcopal School of Dallas and The Hockaday School, both in Preston Hollow, and McKinney North High School were named finalists in the division.


And since the DMN is a couple hundred short on staff these days, the paper announced seven students had been awarded high school internships, including ESD junior Steele Burrow and senior Rebecca Simon.

OK, there’s really not any correlation there, they do the internships every year. But I’ve got a feeling this year’s crop of high school interns is going to get to do a lot more work than previous year’s.

Who says you can’t have free child labor in America these days?
