Highland Wins Fourth Consecutive State Scholastic Publication Championship

Volcano Vista's team tied for second place in the competition for newspaper, yearbook and literary magazine students.

For the fourth year in a row, Highland High took state in the New Mexico Scholastic Publications Championship held earlier this month. Volcano Vista High tied for second place with Sandia Prep.

Students competed in newspaper, yearbook and literary magazine categories. The results come from points awarded to each student who places in the individual on-site competition in the three categories. The school with the most points is named state champion.
