The Tribe has won two first place awards and two staffers won individual honors at the High School Journalism Awards sponsored by The Palm Beach Post. The site won the General Excellence Award for best website and a first place award for best use of social media. In addition, Photo Editor Adison Gonzalez earned an honorable mention in the photography category and Staff Writer Skylar Cross earned second place in Feature writing.

Editor-in-Chief Mishka Brice and Managing Editor Abigail Brannock, both seniors, accepted the two staff awards. The best website prize also came with $500 for the newspaper to buy supplies and new equipment.

The awards luncheon, held at the Embassy Suites in West Palm Beach honors high school journalists from across the county and includes both public and private schools. Last year, The Tribe came in second in the best online newspaper category, but judges said that improved use of multi-media, social media and a constant update of news helped The Tribe stand out.
