The Empire State Scholastic Press Association has once again honored the Soule Road Middle yearbook and its staff.
On October 28, the 2016 edition of The Steppingstone was awarded ESSPA’s top honor - Gold/Best All New York - for the fifth year in a row. SRM was the only middle school to receive this award, and ESSPA Director Sherri Taylor recognized SRM for continuing to compete (and win) at the high school level.
The yearbook earned eight additional overall awards during the annual competition - a Gold for Theme Presentation, a Gold for Divider Pages Design, a Gold for People Section Coverage, a Gold for Special Topic Coverage, a Silver for Sports Coverage, a Silver for Sports Photography, a Silver for Club/Organization Spread and a Silver for Cover Design.
ESSPA also honored SRM eighth-grader Ashley Kurz with a Gold for Feature Photograph.
The awards were presented during the annual ESSPA Conference at Syracuse University. SRM students also had the opportunity to attend several information sessions that covered topics such as photography, interviews, creative writing and more.
