AUSD Middle School Journalism Competition Winners

Spring 2021
AUSD Middle School Journalism Competition Spring 2021

Arcadia Unified's Digital Communications Internship (DCI) hosted its second AUSD Middle School Competition of the 2020-21 school year. In Fall 2020, DCI hosted a news article competition. This time around, middle school students from Dana, First Avenue, Foothills, and Rancho Lab Middle Schools could submit newsworthy entries via various mediums, which included video, podcast, graphic design, and news articles, with one winner selected per category. Students were asked to tailor their productions to the following prompt: 


"What was the most important take-away you had from 2020 that has shaped how you will approach the future?"


The competition ran from April 28, 2021 to May 9, 2021, and participants were provided with these detailed instructions


Sincere congratulations to this semester's winners! Click on their images below to see the really great pieces of journalism these outstanding students produced.
