North Shore High School Junior Wins Editorial Writing Award

Congratulations go out to Caroline Reiner, a junior, who won a third place award for Editorial Writing at LIU Post’s Best of High School Journalism Awards. This national competition includes schools from Long Island, Queens, Connecticut and Texas and only contains five categories.

Caroline Reiner’s Viking View article titled, “The Haunting Cycle of Charity,” explores the idea that, though well-meaning charity work can have the unexpected negative consequences of undermining a local self-help of efforts. The Viking View is the North Shore High School newspaper. 

English Department Teacher Leader, Julie Ritter stated, “High school newspapers support the tradition of journalism as a cornerstone of our democracy. Under the skillful guidance of Ms. Sara Millman, The Viking View, not only informs readers of vital current events, but also invites student writers to actively engage in informed and objective civic discourse.”

She concluded by saying, “Caroline’s article, “The Haunting Cycle of Charity,” conveys the utmost professionalism.  It showcases her aptitude for gathering and analyzing information, leveraging sound reasoning, and balancing competing evidence with the highest of ethical standards.  I am so proud of Caroline’s commitment to open-minded investigation and of her talent for crafting words that resonate with passion and voice.”
