From students hosting a basketball game to raise awareness for cancer, to a student council members holding a blood drive at their school, the Feb. 7 edition of The Daily News Press Club was full of stories highlighting the positive side of today’s youth.

“Being in the news business, we hear a lot about the negative behavior displayed by some of today’s teens. That’s why I have always loved our press club pages. Our school reporters do a great job of highlighting the positive actions of their peers,” said staff writer Michelle Ehresman.

Sometimes our reporters even shine a light on the benefit of programs that enhance their educational experience.

Such was the case with this week’s winning article, “MU freshman see chemistry demo from Science in Motion” by Mount Union reporter, Shelly Bliss.

“Science in Motion is an amazing program that brings science to life for our area students. Bliss perfectly captured the benefits of having live demonstrations in the classroom to help explain concepts to students. That coupled with a great photo made me want to be a part of that class!” Ehresman added.

Bliss will receive $25 for her work.
