Berkeley High Jacket

The Jacket is the student newspaper serving the roughly three thousand students of Berkeley High School, California. Published since 1912, the paper gained national attention in 1999 when two student reporters, Megan Greenwell and Iliana Montauk, published an investigative piece that helped lead to the prosecution of local businessman Lakireddy Bali Reddy for sex trafficking and other criminal activities. This reporting won the Jacket staff the "Journalist of the Year" award from the Society of Professional Journalists Northern California Chapter. The paper since has won several awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association in 2010, 2017, and 2018, and was a finalist for the 2018 National Scholastic Press Association Pacemaker Award.
