Each year School Newspapers Online (SNO) offers student newspaper programs with outstanding online journalism the opportunity to apply to become a SNO Distinguished Site. This past month, the staff of Liberty High School’s publication, Wingspan, earned this status.
Before being awarded the title of SNO Distinguished Site, Wingspan earned online digital badges in the areas of site excellence, story page design, writing, multimedia, coverage, and audience engagement.
Representing what SNO sees as the six components of a modern news website, these six individual badges make up the SNO Distinguished Sites program.
SNO started the SNO Distinguished Sites program to eliminate ambiguity and delineate standards of excellence for an online student news site. Last year, 27 schools earned all of the badges and the honor of becoming a SNO Distinguished Site.
