For the second year in a row, the Octagon has been nominated as a finalist for the national Pacemaker award, often referred to as the Pulitzer Prize of high-school journalism.

The Octagon has entered over 17 times, but has been a finalist only five times, winning once in 2002.

The Pacemaker winners will be announced Saturday, Nov. 17, at the JEA/NSPA Fall National Journalism Convention in San Antonio, Texas.
