Knight Errant Wins Multiple Awards

Awarded at the Minnesota High School Press Association Convention

The BSM Knight Errant students attended the Minnesota High School Press Association Convention on Tuesday, October 10. There the student run news outlet was awarded 12 individual awards and 7 publication awards. KE was also recognized nationally being one of three schools in Minnesota to be a CSPA Crown Finalist in the Hybrid News division for their work during the 2016-2017 school year. This award looks at the Knight Errant as one publication - pulling in the print, online and magazine together as one entry. In March, they will anounce Gold or Silver Crown categories, but to be selected reflects the work that our students put into producing a quality publication.
