At the third annual Newsies Awards for High School Journalism, senior Catherine Moskos won the first place prize for In-Depth reporting in 2011-2012. In their online edition, The New York Daily News subsequently published her article, “Affirmative Action Sparks Debate During College Season.”

The judges said about her piece, “A sparkling piece of in-depth reporting, Reporter Moskos…enriches her piece with a broad chorus of voices from students, making her reporting even more compelling. The end result is a smart piece that is both thorough and relevant.”

The contest is hosted by Baruch College and is the only high school newspaper competition for New York City journalists.
