Blake wins big at journalism convention


Last Friday, Blake students from both the Journalism and TV Film departments enjoyed attending the Florida Scholastic Press Association convention at University of South Florida. Attendees were able to select from a variety of workshop sessions. Topics included photography, interviewing, and layout design.

Rebeca Braukman, Blake High School, and Caliph Champion, Middleton High School enjoy editing their On-the-spot contest submissions at a USF campus cafe.

In addition to workshops, students also submitted works for competitions. Students from the journalism program won many awards.

One of the photographs by Cydney Socias entered in the Architectural Smartphone Photography challenge.
