The Lance Award
This past March, The Lance Newspaper was named best high school newspaper in the state by the Wisconsin Newspaper Association (WNA) Foundation. After submitting The Lance into the WNA’s 2020 High School Better Newspaper competition, Writing for the Media was awarded first place in their General Excellence category, along with a $1,000 scholarship. 

The committee judges the quality of newspapers from all around Wisconsin based on the depth of news coverage, relevance of opinion pieces, and overall layout and design. La Follette’s 2020 Winter Issue and 2020 May/June Issue were praised for their “depth of coverage” and ability to cover a variety of topics on a local and national level.
