Three graduates of Glenwood Springs High School received awards from the Colorado High School Press Association (CHSPA) for their work at the student newspaper – the Brimstone – during the 2005-06 school year. And the awards are just part of the routine for this student publication.”We have a long tradition of winning awards,” said Glenwood Springs High School teacher and Brimstone advisor Laura Hardman. “We win some awards every year.”Hannah Greenstreet took third place in the “school related article” category and was commended for her in-depth interviewing skills. Nathan Moore took third place in the column category with his very unique sports column, “Sports with Nathan,” even though Moore only wrote for the paper for a single semester.

“He was widely read throughout the school because of his ability to make sports interesting to everybody,” Hardman said. “I even liked reading his column.”And Ivy Arneson, a photographer for the paper, received an honorable mention – not for her photos, but for her writing ability. She took the award in the “feature article” category for her feature on new faculty member Charlie DeFord.Each of these individuals was very dedicated to the paper and producing a quality product, Hardman said. She said Greenstreet has gone on to study journalism at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

There were 12 categories of submissions on behalf of the student paper altogether, so taking home three awards was a good showing.”I think it’s very exiting,” Hardman said. “It’s Inspiring to the news staff and encourages new aspiring writers to write for the paper.”The Brimstone currently has six students on its staff, about half as many as last year, but still plans to take some awards this year.

“The staff is very dedicated, and that is what counts,” Hardman said.Contact John Gardner: 945-8515, ext.
