LEXINGTON – Three Lexington High School journalism students will compete in the State Journalism Champion-ships in Lincoln on May 13.
Seniors Lilia Jimenez, Melanie Estrada and Yracema Rivas will compete in the yearbook theme development category in Class A2.
Students were judged on their work on last year’s high school yearbook titled “Bird is the Word,” which had a twitter inspired grey cover with the Lexington Minuteman emblem.
“This is our second year in a row going to state competing in this particular category,” said Lexington High School Journalism Teacher Erica Brockmoller.
The three students qualified for the state contest after finishing in third place among Class A2 schools in a preliminary round of judging.
Like at state competitions for sporting events, schools in the journalism contest are judged on a points system in their respective class, Brockmoller said.
Work on the current year’s Lexington High School yearbook was going along well, Brockmoller said.
“Our layouts are coming along,” she said. “This is the most cohesive yearbook we’ve had in the last few years.”
Yearbooks are still available and will be available until the last day of school, before and after graduation, cost is $35.
