Algonquin's literary magazine wins gold

Northborough – The Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) recently awarded Algonquin Regional High School's Art & Literary Magazine a gold medal for the 2012-2013 edition of its magazine, Sachem.

CSPA is an international student press association, founded in 1925, whose goal is to unite student journalists and faculty advisers at schools and colleges through educational conferences, idea exchanges, textbooks, critiques and award programs. The medals are awarded once a year to magazines of the highest quality. Magazines can receive a bronze, silver or gold award. This is the fourth year in a row that the magazine has won a gold medal.

Sachem is produced once a year by the students of Algonquin Regional High School. The magazine features student writing and art in all forms. The staff meets as an extracurricular club after school on Wednesdays throughout the year. It is an entirely student-run and produced publication from choosing the submissions and artwork to laying out the design of the magazine.

Each year the students work very hard to create a beautiful, thematic magazine, and last year's theme was “Sequences.”

The staff would like to thank the Northborough-Southborough School Committee for providing the resources to print the magazine each year. In addition, the staff writes grants to fund the remaining balance. They would also like to thank the Northborough Cultural Council and the Southborough Cultural Council for their support in keeping the magazine alive.
