Six Parkway West High School students attended the National Scholastic Press Association Conference in Phoenix, AZ April 15-18.

Students attended pre-convention workshops, toured the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and attended over 200 different learning sessions.

In addition to the workshops, students participated in a Journalism Write-off Competition. One thousand one hundred and seven students entered these contests and Parkway West High School walked away with three National Award winners:

• Caroline Ayers won an Honorable Mention for sports copy and caption writing
• Katie Masucci won an Excellent Award for student life copy and caption writing
• Laura Zambarana won an Excellent Award for academic copy and caption writing

At the conference, students sat on the news set, produced a mock weather broadcast, toured the editing room and watched a live broadcast.
