The SNO Report: A site update for how to use fonts

This week, we pushed out a FLEX theme update that expands how you can utilize Google Fonts on your news site.

That section of the SNO Design Options page should now look something like this:

The big change is that now, for each font, you can choose to utilize a specific weight of a font style, rather than that option being standardized as it was.

So now, It’s imperative that you pay attention to which weights are available for each font on the Google Font library. Our Design Options page will present you options for weights from 100 (thinnest) to 900 (boldest) no matter the font, but if that font doesn’t actually have the weight you’re trying to set it to, it will not display correctly.

On Google’s font library, finding which weights are available is a dropdown arrow option you have for each font. Like this:

Roboto (pictured) is an excellent, versatile font to use anywhere on your news site because it has six different weights available.

You can also quickly find out how much variety a font has, on the Google Font library, as it shows how many styles (12 styles, 1 style, etc.) each font has in parenthesis next to its name.

In designing your site, you could now use a standard 400 weight Roboto for your body text and a bolder 700 weight Roboto for headlines to create a clear, hierarchical difference between the two. In the past, the only way to differentiate the two identical fonts was by the larger headline text sizes, or using different fonts altogether.

Before, you could already get pretty crazy with font choices — and now even more so. Let’s not… So, here’s some advice for fonts, from our font nerds:

  • Don’t use Script fonts, ever. Script style fonts are kind of like hoverboards: They look appealing in the store window, but they’ll explode beneath your feet if you use them. We removed them — and some of the uglier serif and sans-serif styles — out of the preset fonts list on the Design Options page with this update. Whew!
  • Readability is the whole ballgame. Your rule of thumb in picking fonts for all areas on your news site should be: Is it easy to read, in all sizes? Some fonts that look good as big headlines may not be good when they’re shrunk down to the size of a 14-point teaser or body text.
  • Don’t use more than two fonts on your site, especially now that you can, in some cases, do so much with just one font. Typically, you’ll separate your two by anything that’s a title (headlines, menu items, widget titles) and body text.

We recommend Roboto, of course, and all of the serif and sans-serif fonts we kept in the preset list on the Design Options page. Here are several others worth a look:

Gentium Basic
Libre Baskerville
Work Sans
Nunito Sans
Secular One
Bree Serif
News Cycle
Open Sans Condensed
Patua One
Francois One

Julius Sans One
Unica One
Squada One
DM Serif Text

Fira Sans
Russo One

Pokémon, refugee resources, and the first Assignment Desk: last month on Best of SNO

Heading into week three of Best of SNO, we’ve already received more than 1,300 submissions from 161 different schools. Haven’t hit that “submit” button yet? Time to jump on the bandwagon.

From vaping to climate change protests to local TikTok celebrities, there are definitely some common coverage areas coming at many of you. However, we’ve also read a ton of unique submissions breaking out of those categories. These are some of the best stories of the past few weeks, written and submitted by students just like yours:

HB 126: A timeline of the abortion billby Emma Lingo, Kirkwood High School
“Within the last three months, Missouri passed one of the most restrictive laws in the country regarding abortion, blocked several attempts to initiate a state referendum and has been torn on renewing the medical license of the last Planned Parenthood that can perform abortions. For those not constantly glued to the news or just tired of reading it all, it can be nice to have stories broken down into bite-sized pieces — so here’s a timeline along with input from pro-life and pro-choice activists to guide you through the thicket of Missouri’s new law.”

Sexism in speech and debate: competitive speakers’ fight for their voiceby Tyler Kinzy, Parkway West High School
“It is the conversation that speech and debate coach Cara Borgsmiller is forced to have several times each season. ‘I talk openly about it, especially the first time they get a ballot that says something about it.’ You were rude to your opponents. Your tone of voice was annoying. Your skirt was too short. ‘It’ is the bias that women must confront at every speech and debate tournament.”

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? by Lucie Flagg, North Allegheny Senior High School
“‘I often say the true goal of Hello Neighbor is to help the refugees feel more comfortable and confident in their new lives here,’ said Davidson. ‘In particular for the moms, who struggle with taking care of little kids and many of whom lack the language to communicate in English, this is huge towards feeling independent and feeling like they’re contributing to the success of their families.’”

Mirror, Mirrorby Lizzie Kayser, Liberty High School
“Many students struggle to reconcile the reality of their bodies to an unattainable image. Five of Liberty’s girls have decided to share how this battle has affected their lives. Five athletes, scholars and leaders are embarking on an everyday journey to break past idealism and love themselves.”

Catching Memoriesby Emily Davis, Starr’s Mill High School
“For Evan, remembering his father Allen, a 2006 graduate from Starr’s Mill, is a matter of like father, like son. Hundreds of Pokemon cards, toys, and characters leave behind favored memories and ease the ache that accompanies the death of his father.”

Female Football Player Breaks New Groundby Lexie Diekroeger and Connor Del Carmen, Marquette High School
“‘The other day, she had a really clean block that I used as an example when talking to the team about proper blocking,’ Dieffenbach said. ‘No one anymore thinks twice about her being a girl because she has proven her ability and work ethic can help the team in so many ways.’”

Sophomore Jacob Waterman Becomes First La Salle Athlete to Kneel During National Anthem, Inspiring Others to Join Himby Maggie Rasch, La Salle Catholic College Preparatory
“‘I just want to bring attention to the subject and create a community that’s more inclusive and more respectful towards people and their differences,’ said Waterman, who hopes that ‘people are going to realize that it’s not about disrespecting our military, but it’s more towards the greater problem that’s happening in our country.’”

Dear Americaby Nicolas Reyes, Coppell High School
“America, your loved ones are dying and while I often feel I cannot keep doing so, I will continue pleading with you every time more perish. Sadness and fury make clicking my keys more difficult. Your people cannot keep dying. Your people cannot keep living in fear. Your “silent majority” cannot keep turning their cheeks and enjoying their silence. You must stand for so much more.”

Marching band takes more than just walking in timeby Emma Hutchinson, Prosper High School
“So we don’t kick a ball or swing a bat. We still play on a field. We still get points. We still give our all. And at the end of the night, we still wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.”

Read more great stories like these on Best of SNO.

And now, for two important announcements:

  • Tuesday marked the first day you could apply for SNO Distinguished Sites badges. Already, 26 schools have earned the Excellence in Writing badge by having three stories published on Best of SNO.
  • The first “Assignment Desk” topic of the 2019-2020 school year is … Vaping. Much has changed since you covered the topic last year. Then, it was trendy, albeit an unknown, and Juul was a verb. Now, a much scarier picture of its risks is being painted — double-digit deaths have been linked to it, states are banning sales of e-cigarettes and the FDA is watching it all very closely. With growing amounts of new information, show us how you are updating your coverage now by submitting those stories to Best of SNO.

The SNO Report: Meet SNO’s Newest Employee

Just as it came for the outfield fence at Wrigley Field, Ivy has come to SNO.

This Ivy has a capital I and is a human being. You may call her Ivy Kaplan. She’ll coordinate our awards programs, train and support you and, one day, defeat all of us in this office in ping pong. Meet Ivy:

Q: Explain your job like I’m an alien.

A: Basically my job involves managing the Best of SNO program (a showcase of the best student journalism from members of the SNO Network), and the Distinguished Sites program (where news staffs can submit to earn six different badges), conducting trainings with advisers and news staffs to improve their websites, and assisting with customer support (very infrequently).

Q: OK. So how did you end up with SNO?

A: After moving back to Minneapolis from D.C. where I was writing for a small news outlet, I knew I wanted to stay involved in journalism in some way. In high school, my school newspaper used SNO to host our website, so I was familiar with the company and how it really helps elevate the work of high school journalists nationwide. When I saw the job posting for SNO, it seemed like the perfect fit!

Q: You went to college in D.C. Which landmark site did you visit most?

A: The Lincoln Memorial

Q: Which President of the United States was your favorite while you lived there?

A: I was there from 2015 to 2019, so definitely Barack Obama.

Q: OK, fine: Favorite of all time?

A: Still Obama.

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?

A: I like to run, get outside whenever possible, travel and cook.

Q: So… not ping pong? What’s one lesson you’ve learned at the SNO ping pong table so far?

A: That I desperately need to find anywhere with a ping pong table to practice. My current skills are truly embarrassing.

Q: Did you watch the Emmys on Sunday?

A: Yes.

Q: Which celebrity would you want to interview if you got your pick?

A: Probably Dan Levy. I’m obsessed with him and Schitt’s Creek.

Q: Give us a juicy D.C. interview story. (If you must use a fake name, only “Deep Throat” will be accepted.)

A: At my last internship, there were a few times I was able to go to the White House when President Trump was boarding his helicopter to travel somewhere. Occasionally, in his walk to board, he would stop and answer reporter questions. While the questions I shouted out were unsurprisingly ignored as an unknown reporter, it was still a pretty cool experience.

Q: What’s your favorite thing of all the things?

A: Good Indian food.

Q: What’s the last article you read?

A: The New York Times: “Trump to Revote California’s Authority to Set Stricter Auto Emissions Rules”

Q: What’s the first news site you go to every morning?

A: Usually NPR.

Q: What’s up?

A: The sky.

The SNO Report: Is your content Best of SNO?

We know we won’t have your attention for long after we say this, but here it comes:

Best of SNO season is upon us. Right now, you can go to the SNO Badges section of your website’s dashboard and submit eligible stories.

The baseline requirements separating eligible stories from the ineligible remain the same as they were last year:

  1. Stories must be at least 300 words long, with the exception of videos
  2. Stories must have a featured image that has a caption with at least 10 words and a photo credit
  3. Stories must have a byline with a writer’s first and last name
  4. Stories must be submitted within 90 days of being published
  5. A maximum of three stories can be submitted from your site on any given day

Then of course, the content must be good. It should stand out from the crowd (because it is awfully crowded up in here). It’s extremely competitive.

Last year, we reviewed close to 13,000 stories from 416 programs worldwide and published about 20 percent of them (more than 2,000). Only 269 of the 416 participating programs were published at least once.

Having three stories published to Best of SNO still gets you the Excellence in Writing badge, of the SNO Distinguished Sites program. The remaining badges can be applied for starting Oct. 1.

The SNO Report: Have you done these new-year tasks?

We know the start of a new school year is the busiest. We’re feeling it, too.

You’re trying to teach a new batch of students what journalism is and introduce them to your news site, all the while finding yourself in a tense cat-and-mouse game with whatever new firewall blocks your school snuck into the system over the summer.

If you have time, consider checking a few of these essential tasks off of your list:

Schedule a website training

Let us help you with the part where you have to show students how to use the website. If you’ve already purchased a single training or yearly training subscription, all you need to do is schedule it. If not, consider ordering one and we’ll have one of our experts train ‘em for ya. (Speaking of our experts, we’ve hired another trainer. Welcome Ivy to the team.)

Introduce yourself

Are you a new adviser? We’d love to meet you. If you’re not the adviser at all, well, click on that link so that we can stop bugging you with these extremely well-written emails.

Update your user accounts

Your new students? You’ll want to create each of them a user account. Returning students? You might want to update their account permissions. Students gone? You might want to take back their permissions and make them a Subscriber. Everything you need to know is right here.

Create Staff Profiles

Make it a fun activity. Who doesn’t want to look this classy?

Create a new Header Image

Because it isn’t the 50-year anniversary of your school every year, and also because this year’s staff is only this year’s staff once. Let them put their stamp on their site.

Set a new goal

Is this the year you finally start using your Sports Center Add-On? Is it time to monetize the site? Are you feeling ready to finally go after that Multimedia Badge?

Start looking at those Badges

The SNO Distinguished Sites program opens Oct. 1, but you can review the requirements right now on the SNO Badges section of your site’s dashboard.

Create a new Design Snapshot

Save a snapshot of the way your site is right now, especially if you’re planning on working on redesigns this year. Here’s how it works.

Tell your readers about the app

If you’re on the new Student News Source app, tell your readers right away with a “Letter from the Editor” article on your site and some house advertising. If you’re not on the app, you could be.

The SNO Report: What’s New from SNO

Hello, you! Welcome to another school year with the SNO Patrol. Summer’s been fun, hasn’t it? But it’s time to get to work.

Here are a couple of new toys and another change we want you to know about:

The new FLOW

A new version of FLOW is here to hopefully help make overseeing your journalism program a little more manageable. That’s why we created the all-in-one newsroom management system five years ago. Now we’ve rebuilt it, using recommendations from advisers just like you.

The new version has customizable assignment types, filters and workflows, automated publishing to your website, Google Docs integration, chat, notifications and photo storage, just to name a few features — not to mention the companion apps we’re working on.

It’s $250 a year as an add-on to your SNO website subscription, but you can get to know FLOW right now with a four-week free trial or by scheduling a FLOW demo.

Student News Source app

We announced a full overhaul of our SNOMobile platform last spring. Unlike our old platform that relied on expensive-to-build, difficult-to-support individual apps, the Source app is more of a hub of student journalism across the country. Users can choose to follow one or many student publications as they want to keep up on. (So far, 104 publications are on it.)

The app features push notifications by category, staff profiles, photo galleries, article comments, video, social sharing and design control from your WordPress dashboard. 

It’s $250 a year as an add-on to your SNO website subscription but free to download on iOS and Android devices to explore as an end user. Go on, give it a try — leave us a review on your app store and rate it five stars.

Design Options

Over the years, so much has been added into or taken out of the SNO Design Options page. This summer, we made a real effort to reorganize where tools were grouped there.

There are new and renamed sections. “Links” gives you a centralized place to change the color and functionality of all links on your website.

Other tools have moved. Your “Site Width Options,” for example, moved into a “General Settings & Structure” section, and favicon and bullet point settings are now in a section titled “General Settings.” The spot where these settings had been housed before is gone altogether.

SNO Recognizes 49 Student Publications As SNO Distinguished Sites For 2018-19

SNO’s Distinguished Sites national recognition program, developed six years ago in an effort to more-clearly outline a set of standards for online student journalism excellence, saw more participation and success than ever before during the 2018-2019 school year.

SNO recognized 49 student publications as distinguished sites, compared to 27 last year, and awarded a total of 219 publications at least one badge, up from 117.

Beginning the year, SNO changed the way publications would apply for badges in an attempt to make the program more accessible (applications and badge information was available from the dashboard of each publication’s website) and user-friendly (publications could save their progress on an application to return to it later).

Considering the final participation numbers, that change was successful.

“We’re excited that our new simplified and streamlined submission process has made it easier for more journalism programs to work on best practices and get feedback about the direction of their website,” said Jason Wallestad, SNO co-founder.

The sentiment was echoed by award winners.

“We have been working towards this achievement for the past three years and were so excited to finally accomplish our goal this year,” said Ashley Swain, adviser to The Stampede at Wiregrass Ranch High School in Wesley Chapel, Fla. “The new format for submitting our individual badges and our Best of SNO submissions really helped us stay focused and organized this school year. I really appreciated that when we began submitting for the badges.”

The student publications pursue six badges that outline standards of excellence in areas of website design, audience engagement, story page layout, multimedia, writing and overall coverage. This year, as an additional and trending test in multimedia, SNO required that students produced and published podcasts to earn the badge.

“All five publications classes contributed to the goal of achieving the Distinguished Site recognition,” said Jonathan Hall, adviser to LHS Today at Liberty High School in Lake St. Louis, Mo. “Each class worked hard to improve the overall content of the site this year and promote it. Students were excited about becoming a Distinguished Site and the effort created a stronger sense of unity within the publications program.”

The badges are not to be passively applied for, as Hall’s five-class effort can attest to; rather, successful publications review the standards and plan for what it’ll take to meet them. When rejected, applications return to students with feedback and the opportunity to reapply.

“The badges forced my students to think more critically about what they covered and how they covered it,” said Mary Long, adviser to The Blueprint at Downers Grove South High School in Illinois. “It was an excellent learning experience for them. They were so filled with pride when the plaque arrived in the mail.”

Each of the 49 SNO Distinguished Site winners received a plaque in the mail — an occasion usually cause for celebration.

“Two administrators just burst into our classroom, read a letter, shook our hands and gave us a plaque,” wrote Lisa Roskens, adviser to Eagle Nation Online at Prosper High School in Texas.

A nice moment for first-time winners, for sure. Each publication interviewed for this article finally did get that plaque this year.

This year’s completed list of SNO Distinguished Sites:

The SNO Report: Best of SNO Superlatives

Alright, so automating Best of SNO really worked. It created a project (new jobs!) for a full-stack developer and a few gray hairs (who’s counting!) for an education/training specialist. It had an MVP-caliber year. Here’s proof:

At the time of this email, Best of SNO had…

It was a highly-competitive year, with less than 20 percent of submitted stories being selected. That level of excellence made selecting these Best of SNO superlatives most challenging.

Of the thousands of stories published on Best of SNO this year, here’s a sampling of our favorites. And because news can be so angering, depressing and plain sad these days, let’s start here:

The SNO Report: Tasks to End the Year

Whether your school’s still making up for a bunch of snow days or you’ve already been dismissed for the summer, we hope we can ease your brain a little bit with a straightforward list of tasks to do before your website goes to sleep.

  • Turn your site’s departing staff members into subscribers. Doing this retains all the great content those students produced this year but takes away their access to the backend of the website.

  • Run any available updates. Check to make sure your site is running the latest version of WordPress and your plugins are up-to-date as well. Doing this protects the site over the summer and gives you fewer updates to run when you get back.

  • Save a Snapshot of your site. It can’t hurt to save a Design Snapshot of the design of your site that you’re ending the year with, especially if you’re planning on testing out some design changes over the summer.

  • Departing adviser? Tell us. We’d love to welcome the new adviser to the SNO community in proper fashion. So if you’re leaving the job, notify us.

  • Put us to work. Summertime is the best time to order a SNO Site Review or SNO Site Overhaul. We’ll make it a summer project, and you’ll have a newly refurbished site or detailed written analysis ready to review when you get back.

  • Maybe think about a training. Our trainer conducts personalized hour-long virtual sessions for advisers, students, students and advisers, advisers and their pets — whatever. Think about when you want your incoming staff trained. Order a training session and schedule it whenever it makes sense, before the end of the year, during summer downtime or hold onto it until the fall.

  • Join us on the road. SNO will be at several regional summer workshops and you can be, too. See you there?

As always, we want to express our sincere appreciation for letting us build and support your websites this year. We hope you enjoy your summer break and we look forward to another great school year just around the corner.

Introducing Student News Source: The new mobile app for SNO customers

Several months ago we announced that we were working on a complete overhaul of our SNOMobile platform, and we asked for help in shaping the new app.

Over 100 SNO customers took the time to provide feedback, and here’s what they said: Make the new app seamlessly integrate with SNO websites, fill it with useful features like photo galleries, automated push notifications and story commenting, and above all else, make it affordable.

Today we are pleased to announce the launch the Student News Source app for SNO customers. Unlike our old platform that relied on individual apps that were expensive to build and difficult to support, the Source app functions as a hub of student journalism around the country. Think of it as the Apple News of student media. Users of the app can follow one or many journalism programs in one place.

The Source is full of features we think student journalists are going to love, and we’re excited to offer it for $250 a year as an add-on to a SNO website subscription.

Here are just a few of the features included in the first version of the Source:

  • Latest stories from your SNO website automatically added to the app
  • Design control from your WordPress dashboard

  • Push notifications by category

  • Photo galleries

  • Staff profiles

  • Story commenting

  • Video

  • Search

  • Social sharing

The app is available today in the iOS and Android app stores. And we have added several programs to it already to give everyone a sense of how it will work for their journalism team. Get out your mobile device and search for the Student News Source in the app stores to give it a trial run today.

By taking the entire development in-house and transitioning away from standalone apps, we’re able to continuously add new features to the app that all subscribers will benefit from. In the coming months, we’ll integrate SNO’s Sports Center tools in the app and add reporter-based push notifications, allowing users to receive a notification when their favorite writer publishes a new story.

Current SNO customers can fill out this form to add their program to the Student News Source app today.
