Viking Ventures

About CHHS Viking Ventures

Viking Ventures is the student newspaper of Cape Henlopen High School. The staff members are students in Lewes, Delaware. Staff writers are in their first year with Cape Publications and take the Introduction to Publications course. All Editors are enrolled in Advanced Journalism courses.

Scholastic journalism is good preparation for life. Learning to ask questions and find answers, to organize and prioritize material, to write clearly and succinctly, to be skeptical, to try to uncover all sides of a story, to remain unbiased and fair, to value accuracy and to speak the truth – these are worthwhile lessons. Students create a quality paper that reflects CHHS activities. The class combines academic work with “hands-on” experiences connected with newspaper writing.

Viking Ventures gives students an opportunity to cooperatively produce a publication that accurately and fairly portrays Cape. It provides a service for the school as well as the community. Students are involved in the process from the conception of the article topics to the distribution of the finished newspapers.

Viking Ventures is a proud member of:

Columbia Scholastic Press Association                     Quill and Scroll International Honorary Society for High School Journalists
