Kingwood Park High School journalism students swept up 23 individual awards and a slew of major awards at the annual Texas Association of Journalism Educators Fall Fiesta Contest.
 
Kingwood Park senior Katie Gerbasich was not about to let the plaque leave her sight.
 
The Kingwood Park High School Yearbook Editor in Chief had just watched as her and her fellow classmates swept up 23 individual awards and a slew of major awards at the annual Texas Association of Journalism Educators Fall Fiesta Contest.
 
The plaque that she would not let go of was the ultimate prize - first place Sweepstakes Award, which goes to the best high school journalism program in the State of Texas.
 
“We were all insanely excited,” Gerbasich said. “It just makes it all seem worth it and all the stuff behind the scenes. For us to be like we’re also State Champions, on the same level as the other organizations in the school is just awesome.”
 
Along with the overall top award, Kingwood Park High School brought home honorable mention nods for Best of Show Yearbook and Best of Show Website. The KP Times finished in second place for Best of Show Print Newspaper.
 
Kingwood Park Student Publications Adviser Megan Ortiz has built the program back up from having limited students during the COVID years. Now, a bustling classroom is what welcomes her each day.
 
One that is now chock full of award-winning high school journalism students.
