Recently, the Clarion Newspaper's website received recognition from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. The CSPA is one of two major national organizations devoted to high school journalism. The web site was entered for critique for the first time this year.

The CSPA judges rate high school newspapers in three categories: essentials, verbal, and visual. Three possible rankings are available: gold medalist, silver medalist, and bronze medalist. Additionally, entries can earn All Columbian Honors in any or all of the categories. The Clarion website received a gold medalist designation as well as an All Columbian Honors for the visual elements of the site.

Below is an excerpt from the judge's summary comments on RB's newspaper site:

"When the reader goes to the Clarion, he may intend to pause for a little while but he becomes intrigued by the diversified coverage and excellent multimedia items, and soon realizes he has spent over an hour just going from one section of the web site to another, watching videos, looking at photos, checking our story packages that are wonderfully interwoven throughout the site, and reading excellent stories."

This is the first year being evaluated by the CSPA, and everyone is very pleased with the critique. In the spring, the Clarion will also find out if they have taken any of the CSPA's Gold Circle awards for individual achievements. The newspaper will also be judged later this school year by the National Scholastic Press Association.
