Wabaunsee finishes 3rd as a team in 2A

The 2020 Kansas Scholastic Press Association state competition looked a little different than usual, but WHS journalist still captured some awards.

Instead of traveling to the University of Kansas, the writing competitions took place online in mid-April. All students who placed at the regional competition in February were eligible to compete.

Three WHS students captured state championships. Eleanor Badeker in Copy Editing, Karlee Feyh in Advertising (her entry is pictured above) and Emma Frey in Editorial writing.

Six other entries placed as well, helping Wabaunsee finish 3rd as a team in 2A, behind champion Chase County and runner-up Sterling.
