Some Valley high school journalists are still riding high with excitement after the national recognition they received this past week.

Last Saturday, Fresno Christian High School students were in San Francisco for a national journalism conference. They competed against the best high schools in the country and won the National Scholastic Press Association Online "Pacemaker Award" for their online newspaper called The Feather.

The award is the high school equivalent to the Pulitzer Prize. It's also the fifth time in Fresno Christian's history to win the honor.

Students also won the "Best Of Show Award" for small school division.
