Student Journalists Receive Prestigious Awards

The student journalism programs at Columbia Heights Public Schools received several state journalism awards from the Minnesota High School Press Association last week.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Columbia Heights High School (CHHS) journalism students moved their previously printed newspaper the “Heights Herald” to a digital format and the School’s TV news network (“Hylander News Network” or “HNN”) is now a podcast. Despite these major shifts, student journalism work placed seven times.
