More than 70 students representing 11 Contra Costa County high school journalism programs won honors in the 2020 Lesher Awards competition.

The competition is open to Contra Costa high schools as part of the CC Spin newspaper program and is judged by professional Bay Area journalists, the California Scholastic Journalism Initiative announced last week.

“Students worked hard at journalism and we wanted to make sure they received their well-earned honors by presenting their work online and to a larger audience,” CSJI Director Steve O’Donoghue said. “Their awards will be mailed out to them.”
