Winners announced in high school contest

The Burlingame B, the student newspaper at Burlingame High School, took first-place honors in General Excellence and a total of nine awards in the 2003-2004 High School Journalism Awards Competition.

The contest is sponsored by the Peninsula Press Club, Hillsdale Shopping Center and the journalism program at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. Awards were presented at a reception May 5 in Ralston Hall at NDNU.

Ten publications from eight high schools from Daly City to Palo Alto offered more than 150 entries for the competition which covered April 1, 2003, through March 31, 2004. Members of the Press Club served as judges for the contest.

This is the first year that Palo Alto was included in the program, and three publications from Palo Alto High School -- the student magazine Verde, the student newspaper The Campanile and the student Web site The Paly Voice -- were among the winners.
