The results from the 2015 American Scholastic Press Awards, and Collab is excited to announce that they have earned the rating of First Place With Special Merit – the top-possible rating in the contest! The magazine earned a total of 965 out of 1000 points this year, up from 910 last year, and it marks the first time that Collab has earned the top accolade in this contest since 1994. It is only the fifth time that the magazine has ever earned this top mark.
Only around 60 magazines in the country were selected for this highest designation, and among high school literary magazines, Collab was the only magazine from Massachusetts, and one of only two magazines in all of New England to earn this ranking. Congratulations to the editing staff for their hard work, and to the contributing writers and artists to Collab Volume 43! Great job!
UPDATE: Collab, Volume 43 also earned an “Excellent” rating in the 2015 NCTE Program to Recognize Excellence in Student Literary Magazines contest.
