About The Hawk

“The Hawk” stands as the official student newspaper of Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, MD, and the only active school newspaper in Worcester County, MD. It is a completely student-run publication, with a student-centered adviser as its facilitator.

Active since 1954, “The Hawk” has been awarded a gold medal in 2007 and silver medals in 2006, 2008 and 2018 from Columbia University. It was solely a print publication until December 2017, when the staff decided to go digital so as to reach a wider readership and to keep up with an ever-changing and accelerating world of technology. Within the first few months of digital conversion, “The Hawk” acquired two of the six SNO Distinguished Sites Badges, including the badges for Continuous Coverage and Site Excellence for 2018. As of April 2019, “The Hawk” has earned the Story Page Excellence and Site Excellence badges. The staff is currently working hard to eventually earn all six badges.
