East Meadow High School seniors in Daniel Vogelsberg’s journalism class, along with members of The Jet Gazette, attended the Adelphi University Press Day and Quill Awards on February 6. Four of the paper’s contributors were honored with awards.
Julia Cuttone was presented with a first-place plaque in the category of “Best Freelance Work.” Meanwhile, third place awards were earned by Sabeen Siddiqui for “Best Arts Review,” Erik Davis for “Best Photograph” and Ridannelyn Gallo for “Best Illustration or Cartoon.”
In addition to the award ceremony, students participated in panel discussion, question and answer segments and breakout sessions to dive into various areas of the media industry. Press Day is part of Adelphi’s Annual High School Special Event Series.
“We are all proud of the hard work from our paper’s contributors and the Gazette’s staff is looking forward to next year’s Press Day,” said Mr. Vogelsberg.
