Indy Student Intern Honored by National Scholastic Press Association

• Bookmarks: 69

October 24, 2020

Kira Ratan, a junior at The Masters School in Dobbs Ferry and an intern for The Hudson Independent for the past year, has been honored by the National Scholastic Press Association, which, along with the Society of Professional Journalists and the Society for New Design, have recognized “outstanding COVID-19 coverage by high school media.” Print, online and broadcast submissions from last spring were considered.

Kira was awarded second place in the category of General Content Online for her story, “Stay-at-Home Orders lead to Soaring Screen Time Levels for Students,” published April 30 in her school newspaper, The Tower, and published here on the Indy web site one day later (https://thehudsonindependent.com/stay-at-home-orders-lead-to-soaring-screen-time-levels-for-students/).

Rotary Duck Derby in Tarrytown

Kira was the Web Editor and Social Media Manager for The Tower during last school year and has been an intern for The Hudson Independent since October, 2019. Altogether, she has had seven by-lined stories in The Indy, but is also responsible for dozens of posted items that required technical skill. We are grateful — and proud— to have her with us.
