The Columbia Scholastic Press Association has awarded the Darlington Inkslinger literary magazine as a Crown Finalist! The Crown Awards honor top student publications chosen from CSPA’s members. Crowns are selected for overall excellence in head-to-head comparison. During Crown consideration, publications are judged on their excellence as shown by their design, photography, concept, coverage and writing. 

A total of 1,145 publications were eligible for judging, with 63 selected as Crown Finalists.

Student Publications will travel to New York City in March 2020 to find out if they are a Gold or Silver Crown.

Please congratulate the following students for their hard work on and submissions to the Inkslinger.
