Welcome to the 2021-2022 edition of CC Spin

Last year, Contra Costa County public high school students, along with their teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents, faced unprecedented challenges as classes and activities were held remotely and campuses were empty. 

Despite many obstacles, student journalists continued to report on school news and provide perspectives on the lives of their classmates, their communities, and the world around them. They and their teachers and advisers rallied around new ways to publish, including the web, social media, and podcasts. The pandemic didn’t silence them. 

Now students have returned to campuses to learn, create, interact and enjoy new experiences in person. That includes student journalists, who are not only continuing to report via the many digital platforms employed previously but restarting print newspapers and magazines suspended last year.

CC Spin brings you a myriad of the  stories, images and sounds they produced. Story development is supervised by the journalism advisers at the participating schools. Professional journalists coach the students and help guide their reporting and writing. 

CC Spin also is involved in the Lesher Awards, which recognize outstanding local high school journalism. This program will take place next spring. 

So bookmark the CC Spin website at ccspin.net and keep up with the best of Bay Area high school journalism.
