Every fall, the Florida Scholastic Press Association (FSPA) hosts workshops for all seven districts around the state. Robinson High School falls into District 4, and on Thursday, Oct. 26, journalism students went to the University of South Florida to attend the FSPA District 4 Workshop.

Knights had a great time bonding and learning more about journalism through different workshop sessions. Workshop sessions were available where student and professional journalists came in to teach students a variety of topics, from how to come up with better story ideas to what it is like being a food content creator.

Additionally, on-the-spot contests occurred, where students were given a prompt the morning of the event and had to complete the task in the span of two to three hours. Fall Digital contest winners were also announced.

This year, the Knight Writers brought home five on-the-spot awards and one Fall-Digital award.

First-place winners were Cecilia Cheng (’24), Yesenia Rosario (’25) and Janiece Mitchner (’25) for their module design and Winter Carbajal (’26) for his hand‐drawn illustration. Keirra McGoldrick (’24) was awarded second place for her opinion column writing and Ashlyn Miller (’25) was awarded third place for her spot news photography. Malia Rodriguez (’26) was awarded an honorable mention for her opinion column writing as well. Not to mention, Gabi Treviño (’24), Joseph Treviño (’25), Briana Garcia (’25) and Jordan De La Cruz (’25) were awarded an All-Florida for their podcast fall-digital contest.

About the Contributor
Cecilia Cheng, Print Managing Editor
Cecilia Cheng is a senior at Robinson and the Print Managing Editor of Knight Writers. This is her third year on staff and her third year as an editor. A self-proclaimed "Swiftie," Cheng is constantly listening to some form of pop music, but her current favorites include Taylor Swift, Clairo and Pheobe Bridgers. When she's not listening to music, Cheng can be found taking photos, hanging out with friends, thrifting or catching up on her favorite TV shows. As of right now, her absolute favorite show is "Heartstopper," but it fluctuates frequently. This love of TV and movies is reflected in her large discography of reviews on the Knight Writers website and former position as the A&E editor for two years. Cheng makes it clear that A&E is her favorite section. Although she is a big fan of A&E, Cheng enjoys writing articles regardless of their section. "My favorite thing about journalism is the storytelling aspect of it," Cheng said. "I love how I’m able to express my opinion and give people that are underrepresented a voice as well." Outside of journalism, Cheng is involved in many other aspects of the Robinson community, holding positions as the Secretary of Women in STEM and the Social Media Manager of Mu Alpha Theta. Despite her connections to the school, Cheng is excited to graduate and see what awaits her. She hopes to head to her top college, Northeastern, where she plans to major in Biology. However, she isn't prepared to forget her time as a Knight Writer and plans to pursue her journalistic interests as well. "Right now, I’m looking to go to college and major in Biology, to go the pre-med track. I haven’t decided where I want to go yet, but I really hope I get into Northeastern. Also, if it’s possible, I want to double major in Journalism or I would join my college’s newspaper." (Profile by Charlotte Stone)
