Liu is on the staff of The Catamount, College Station High School’s newspaper, while Palazzolo, is on the staff of A&M Consolidated High School’s newspaper, The Roar.
"The staff was created to recognize those journalism students who have gone above and beyond to improve their writing and reporting abilities," said Jeanne Acton, UIL Director of Journalism.
To become a member of the All-State Journalism Staff, students must accumulate points over the year based on their achievements at UIL Journalism competition and other writing and publication contests, both statewide and nationwide. Then students apply to UIL to become a member of the staff.
Any student who is involved in scholastic journalism is eligible for the staff.
"High school journalism students spend many nights and weekends preparing the school publications for distribution as well as preparing for writing competitions," Acton said. "Through scholastic journalism, students learn not only writing skills, but also communication skills and organizational skills."
Advisors for the CSISD newspapers are Courtney Wellmann (CSHS) and Michael Williams (AMCHS).
