TAYLORSVILLE — The Warrior Ledger, Taylorsville High School’s student-produced newspaper, has received the high school equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize by the National Scholastic Press Association.

The Ledger was given the All-American Award — the highest honor a secondary school publication can obtain — by the NSPA for its distinguished performance on a national level in individual areas such as leadership, writing and design.

Taylorsville English teacher Mary Seal noted that the paper and its staff have received generous support from a number of people who have helped with interviews, statistical information, and responding to students’ questions.

“We would not have been able to win this award without that support,” she said.

To receive the award, the Ledger and its student/teacher staff at Taylorsville underwent an annual, national critique competition by the NSPA, which awards merits and marks of distinction in a number of categories.
