Florida Scholastic Press Association Awards

We have great news to report for the Yearbook and Newspaper programs. Our Staff submitted a number of spreads and stories for judging this Spring as we do every year with the Florida Scholastic Press Association (FSPA). There are 4 categories: All-Florida (top 3-5%), Excellent (top 15-20%), Honorable Mention and No Award.

Prior to this year, Fivay has accumulated several Excellent Awards. However, we had won just one All-Florida in our history, which is an award that only goes to the Most Elite Yearbook spreads in the State. This year, our yearbook accumulated 6 All-Florida Awards and our Newspaper one All-Florida for the front page.  Below are the 6 spreads that won an All-Florida Award and will be featured in this year’s yearbook, as well as our Talon Awards and other awards we won. The students who won an All-Florida will be recognized at the State Convention next week in Orlando.
