Over the weekend, the staff from The Current, Tampa Prep's student-run newspaper, received their annual critique from the Florida Scholastic Press Association.
This year, the staff rebranded the entire publication from scratch, formulated a website, social media platforms, and multimedia aspects such as podcasts. Over the past seven months, they have been working very hard writing, designing and producing new content.
The Florida Scholastic Press Association awarded The Current staff a "Silver" rating, and they were only one point away from a Gold rating. Their website was evaluated on both content and fluidity. The judges were looking for a publication that covers diversity, integrity, and exemplifies a professional publication. The evaluation was a great learning experience for students.
Based on the minor issue the judges addressed in their evaluation, the staff has begun the process of coming up with ideas for improvement for next year.
