Zephyr Magazine, the award-winning art and literary magazine of Rye High School, was awarded a Silver Crown Award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.  Zephyr was one of only 12 high school magazines awarded a Silver Crown this year. Overall 154 awards were granted across the country in various categories. 

The magazine is published once a year and is available in an easy to read e-magazine format online. Zephyr also has a Facebook page where you can message the staff including Editor-in-Chief of Zephyr Art Alexandra Khoder, "Dog/Monkey Mastermind" Cathy Telfer and "all important bake sale goddess" Sarah Krikorian.

"This is the first time, to my knowledge, that Zephyr has ever received this recognition. This is a wonderful culminating achievement from the students of the Rye City School District," says Catherine Telfer, Zephyr advisor and Rye High School art teacher.

News of the award was announced on March 19, 2010 at the 86th annual Scholastic Spring Convention. Crown Awards are the highest recognition given by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association to a student print or online medium for overall excellence. Judging took place at Columbia University over the winter.  No set number of Crown Awards is required; the awards are discretionary, based on the evaluation by the Crown Judges who consider writing/editing, design, content, concept, photography, art and graphics.
