Buzz staff writers win Best of SNO badges


The Best in SNO is a showcase for the outstanding articles in scholastic journalism from across the country and world.

Buzz staff members Hannah Li and Allison Wong have been recognized for excellence in journalism for their recently published opinion pieces.  Hannah, the Editor in Chief of the Buzz, was recognized for her article “Unapologetically Asian: Not Your Model Minority.”  Allison, an Opinions Editor, was recognized for her piece “It’s a Hate Crime. This is Why it Matters.”

Both articles were awarded a “Best of SNO” badge by School Newspapers Online, a journalism platform used by The Buzz and several thousand other publications throughout the world. Only 13 percent of the submitted entries have been awarded badges this year.

Hannah and Allison are the first two Buzz journalists to receive badges since The Buzz went live in March. The winning articles can be read at along with other Best of SNO articles. They can also be viewed in the Opinions section at where a “Best of SNO” designation appears above the pieces.

Thank you Hannah and Allison for your efforts toward quality journalism, and more importantly, for addressing these important issues and sharing them with our readership.
