The Big Red is the product of the Hudson High School Journalism class. We regularly provide new content on the website and publish a print edition each term. This award-winning publication began in 2006. Our awards include the following:
Dakota Antelman, one of my editors, was chosen to be part of the Student Critics program at the Hanover Theater this year. He will receive tickets to 6 of their Broadway shows. Before the shows he will attend a workshop with a professional critic to learn about writing reviews. Then he will submit his reviews to the Hanover Theater.
In March of 2015, Alex Schley, one of my editors, was named the Massachusetts Journalist of the Year.
In 2013, she won a Silver Key Scholastic Writing award for her editorial on the new concussion policy for athletes.

Finally, both Alex Schley and Dakota Antelman were chosen to attend the New England High School Journalism Collaborative in June 2015. They made it through 2 rounds of interviews before being chosen. This free camp gave them the opportunity to create a newspaper working with the professionals at the Boston Globe.
