Journalism students across the St. Louis area submitted their work to the Journalism STL contest, and OHS came out on top of several categories for the broadcast, myOHSonline.com, and the 2017 Tiger Paw yearbook.

The journalism program received 10 individual awards, including three Best of Show awards, meaning that they placed at the top of the category.

Bridget Costello (12) and Melanie Neff (12) received a Best of Show Award for Broadcast News. Christian Weber (12), Allison Streb (11), and Taylor Zarr (12) also earned a Best of Show award for Broadcast Feature.

“That was the first story I have personally worked on so seeing it highly recognized was really exciting for me,” said Neff. “Bridget and I worked very hard on the story so I was really happy to see that our hard work paid off.”

Max Rodenbeck (12) and Taylor Zapf (12) earned an Excellent rating for Broadcast Video, and Zapf also received an Excellent rating for Broadcast Feature with Sophia Indelicato (12). An Honorable Mention was given to Morgan Schmidt (12), Zarr, and Neff.

The Tiger Paw Yearbook from 2017 was submitted to the contest as well, and received a superior rating. This is the highest rating a high school can earn.

“I wasn’t the top editor on that book, but I put a lot of work into it along with the rest of the staff,” said Delgado. “I knew it was going to be a special book from the beginning and I’m happy that Journalism STL saw that.”

For articles published on myOHSonline.com and in The Prowl, Mckenzie Knapp (12) received the Best of Show Award for Sports News, and Nicole Neher (12) earned a Superior rating in News Commentary.

“I’m really excited about my best of show award,” said Knapp. “I had no idea I would receive this high of an honor.”

In the news feature category, Kyle Genthon (12) received an excellent rating, and Maddy McClure (12) and Christina Meier (11) got honorable mentions. The website also got an excellent rating in the contest.

“I’ve worked a lot to improve myOHSonline this year,” said Knapp. “I incorporated a lot of new technology to the site that viewers have never seen before.”
