The Little Green named best in New England
On Friday, May 3, 2019, members of the Little Green Newspaper traveled to Boston University for the 71st annual New England Scholastic Press Association conference. Max Nakos and Niko Skaperdas were awarded Highest Achievement for feature page design of the Living & Arts section, Max Nakos and Eamonn Ryan were awarded Highest Achievement for news page design, and the newspaper was awarded Highest Achievement overall for all of New England.
We are excited to continue the Little Green's tradition of excellence. The Little Green newspaper is a forum for student expression. It is student run, relying completely on donations and advertisements, not school or district funds. It is one of the oldest school newspapers in the state, providing copies free of charge to students and faculty of Manchester Central High School.
