     CLOVIS -- Thanks to the Internet, now you can. Now all it takes to be a publisher is knowledge. A high-quality school paper can be published with very little money; a school with an Internet connection and at least one computer could do it free.
     The most important factor in a school paper's success is the staff's commitment to good writing. A publication like that of Lowell High School in San Francisco is an excellent e-model. The Lowell on the Web was started by student Paul Lujan in January 1996. A small but very dedicated group of students currently runs the site. The Lowell on the Web has won awards including first place in content and second place overall in the 1997 NSPA Best of the Net contest and first place in "Functionality" in the 1999 Best of the Net contest. The Lowell on the Web also keeps an archive of past issues. The site is hosted by Global Network Services. The Lowell on the Web strives to inform the public and to use its opinion sections as open forums for debate. All unsigned editorials represent the opinion of the staff.

But, even student news that comes out only a few times a semester may be many good things - a literary magazine, a poetry forum, a photography display case. Here's a link to the Student Press Review page. Take a look at the Scholastic Press Association Awards.
