Westfield High School’s student-run weekly newspaper, Hi's Eye, has been awarded a gold medal by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association in the print and web hybrid category for the 2012-13 school year.  For many years Hi’s Eye has been an award recipient for its printed newspaper. 

Since its venture into both a print and web presence in 2011, Hi’s Eye has captured the gold medal from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association for two consecutive years.

The judges wrote the following in their decision:

"The Hi's Eye demonstrates exactly what a school publication should do; it informs, entertains and provides a forum for student opinion. When a reader picks up the print edition, the quality of the writing impresses. When the reader goes to the digital edition, he finds a website with energy and talent. Kudos to the student designers. It captures the high school's spirit, culture and personality." 

The advisers for Hi’s Eye are Westfield High School teachers Rosemary DiBattista and Nicole Scimone.
