Student journalists from two local Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) have been named Crown Award finalists by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA). Crowns are selected for overall excellence in a head-to-head comparison. During Crown consideration, publications are judged on their excellence as shown by their design, photography, concept, coverage and writing. A total of 1,100 publications were eligible for judging. All six of the FCPS nominated publications will receive either a Silver or Gold Crown Award at an award ceremony at Columbia University on March 16, 2018.

Crown Award finalists from local FCPS schools are: “Columbian,” Marshall High School – Sam Hedenberg, adviser and “The Clan,” McLean High School – Meghan Percival, adviser.
