College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

2017-2018 Scroll + Scrolling Named CSPA Crown Award Finalist

The school's 2017-2018 Scroll + Scrolling print and online literary magazine was named a Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Crown Award Finalist in the Hybrid Magazine category. This marks the sixth consecutive year Holton has earned this honor. Just 20 hybrid magazines from high schools across the country were recognized this year.

CSPA was founded in 1925 to support the scholastic publishing community, provide training for student journalists and advisers, and promote excellence in the field. Crown Awards honor top student publications among member schools. Judges consider overall excellence in a head-to-head comparison, weighing design, photography, concept, coverage and writing. A total of 1,172 publications were eligible for judging this year.

The Hybrid Magazine category debuted just five years ago in response to schools' increasing desire to add digital formats. Scroll + Scrolling was among the pioneers in this arena. It has been a Crown Award Finalist and has gone on to win a Gold Crown Award each year since the category's inception .

At its Spring Convention in March, CSPA will announce which Crown Award Finalists have made it to the next level and will receive Gold Crown Awards.
