Crown Point High School Inklings Editor-in-Chief Hayden Kay said, “It feels amazing that Inklings’ small staff has been recognized. We have changed the format of the publication and balanced writing for both print and Crown Town Media website. I am so proud of the staff for putting in their all because winning state confirms how much their writing matters,” Kay said. “Converging our media went from just being an idea, to being an incredible opportunity for students to share their journalistic excellence on a website platform. To win an award in the first full year of the website’s launch truly shows how hard our staffers work to share the stories of our school at top-notch quality.”
