IMPORTANT: The News-Journal subscribes to a new corporate model that emphasizes use of the electronic replica edition over print newspapers. Beginning in August 2015, NIE print copies will in general will be limited to elementary school teachers. Teachers at the secondary level should choose electronic copies whenever possible.

Preference will be given to ESE, ESOL and reading teachers.

Each year, The News-Journal celebrates the outstanding work of area high schools through its Medallion of Excellence Awards program. High school seniors in Volusia and Flagler counties -- in high schools with more than 25 students in the 2017 graduating class -- should consult with their principal or guidance counselor about applying for an award. Medallion of Excellence award-winners will be students who not only achieve high academic scholarship but who also stand out in extracurricular and community activities in areas including -- but not limited to -- the arts, sports, volunteerism and leadership. Up to 40 Medallion of Excellence winners will be determined by a panel of education professionals and will be honored at a banquet next year.
