MPH Student Publication, the Pebble, Wins National Award

The American Scholastic Press Association recently awarded MPH’s Pebble magazine a First Place Award in its annual national school publication contest.

The judges wrote: “the Pebble is an excellent publication which deserves a First Place Award in the annual American Scholastic Press Association’s magazine competition. Creating a magazine teaches students the fundamentals of publishing and creative writing, proofreading and editing skills, concepts of design/competition and promotes and supports a community of young writers, thereby promoting esteem and status. Your magazine shows the superior efforts of talented and creative editors, writers, artists, photographers, layout/graphics designers, staff members, contributors and advisor.”

The association’s annual review and contest is based on a scoring system that evaluates scholastic publications based on content coverage, organization, design, presentation and creativity. The Spring 2016 issue of the Pebble, the school’s inaugural issue, earned 890 points out of a possible 1,000 for the first place distinction.
