As most schools made a full return to in-person learning this year, attention and focus were understandably pulled in a number of different directions. Despite this, many publication staffs still set their sights on earning SNO badges and working toward becoming a 2021-2022 SNO Distinguished Site.
For some staffs, this year brought them their first-ever Distinguished Sites title.
For others, it offered a chance to continue their impressive multi-year streaks.
Still for a few others, the 2021-2022 Distinguished Sites season provided an opportunity to reclaim their title after a year off.
Whether they’re first-timers or repeat recipients, we recognize all the hard work, dedication, and teamwork it took along the way and congratulate all of our 2022 SNO Distinguished Sites!
