About the Cougar News Blog

By Holly, Ashley, Anna, and Mariahrose

Journalism II has been an elective at Cactus Canyon for three years. Part of being in J2 is running the Cougar News Blog. Students try to blog stories about current events at our school weekly, but we write our stories very fast, so our teacher, Jason Davis, enrolled us into the EduBlogs contest. We entered this contest because we fully believe we have great potential in winning this competition. Our class is ecstatic to have the opportunity to participate in the EduBlogs contest and wish everyone the best of luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!
