Journalism Prize Will be Awarded This Year (Vol. 1, Issue 17)
An annual journalism medal will be awarded to the most promising member of the Commentator staff beginning this June, it was learned recently. Mr. and Mrs. Samuel C. Feuerstein, of Brookline, Mass., will offer the prize to be known as the Feuerstein Medal for Journalism.
The recipient of the medal will be named by the outgoing Governing Board at the end of each school year, and will be announced in the last issue of the paper. Members of the news and associate-news staffs of the paper are the only ones eligible for the medal. This will exclude the outgoing Governing Board. They will be judged on the basis of the best reporting work done, the most active interest in the paper displayed, and the most promising abilities shown.
The medal is being offered in recognition of the high journalistic standards of the Commentator for the past two years. It is also an attempt to further the interests and ideals of the Commentator for the future.
The medal represents an addition to the awards for outstanding service now being offered annually at Commencement exercises
