Cove-er Times Recognized for Excellence Again!

Several Glen Cove High School student reporters with the school’s newspaper, The Cove-er Times, were honored at Adelphi University's Press Day 2013, an event designed to recognize the best among area high school journalists. Approximately 330 students were in attendance representing over 33 high schools from Nassau and Suffolk counties. Out of the six categories that Glen Cove entered, Cove-er Times staff received awards in four categories:

  • Best Opinion Piece -- Silver/second place: Matt Kolbert
  • Best Arts Review -- Silver/second place: Natasha Miller
  • Best Photo -- Silver/second place: Konrad Backiel
  • Best Online Newspaper -- Honorable Mention: Co-editors-in-chief Matt Kolbert and Yaqarah LeTellier

Cove-er Times was one of only a few school publications to garner this many awards at Adelphi. Last month, Matt was also awarded second place in the Commentary/Editorial category at the C.W. Post Media Arts Awards. Matt’s editorial examined the impact of social media and technology on the most recent presidential election and how the Obama campaign’s “Narwhal” project was more effective than the Romney camp’s “ORCA” in reaching targeted voter demographics. This is the same piece Matt was recognized for in the Best Opinion Piece category at Adelphi.
