The 'Stang Express Newpaper Finalist for Contest

         The North Shore Middle School newspaper "The 'Stang Express" is named a finalist by the Interscholastic League Press Conference. The UIL sponsors four journalism contests each year - news writing, feature writing, editorial writing and headline writing. Students compete at the district level, and then the top three places advance to regionals. From regionals, the top three places advance to state competition. North Shore Middle has competed in the last two years, but this year is the first time the publication has advanced to the state competition.
