Posted Monday, May 5, 2014
Loveland High School (LHS) is pleased to announce junior Kayla Bullock is the recipient of an award from Ball State’s annual J-Day contest. Bullock won Honorable Mention in the News Category for "Infinite Resistance starts up their robotics season" – an article which ran in the Nov. 1, 2013, issue of the LHS student newspaper The Roar.
"It is not only exciting, but an extreme honor to have won an award,” said Bullock. “I worked hard on the robotics article to do the team justice, and with the help of my journalism team's talented editors, we put out a really great story."
"Kayla always works hard to make her stories the best they can be sometimes rewriting them several times,” said Rhonda Overbeeke, The Roar advisor. “Her tenacity has paid off; we are very proud of her."
The J-Day contest is a means for high schools to get valuable feedback on their publications, as well as recognition for the most outstanding entries. This year, nearly 700 entries were submitted in newspaper, yearbook, magazine, online and broadcast journalism categories.
