High school journalism awards reception May 2

The San Francisco Peninsula Press Club will present awards in its annual high school journalism contest next Monday, May 2, in the Ballroom of Ralston Hall on the campus of Notre Dame de Namur University, 1500 Ralston Ave., Belmont.

The event is sponsored by Hillsdale Shopping Center.

The contest attracted 459 entries this year, up 40% from last year. Fifteen schools and 221 individual students entered.

Not only will awards be presented at this reception, but students will be able to mingle and share stories about their newspaper endeavors. Students are encouraged to bring their newspapers to the reception to share with others. Members of the Press Club will also be on hand for what is always a fun event. Food and soft drinks will be served.

Driving instructions: When you turn off Ralston Avenue into the university, you immediately need to make a sharp left turn around the sign in the road divider and take Laxague Drive which runs parallel to Ralston on the left side of the chapel in front of you. Follow that road until you see Ralston Hall on your right. Park and come on in.
