Illinois Press Association has awarded a $1,300 grant to the journalism program at Grayslake North High School to expand the online news site of The Knight Times. The staff plans to add more video, photos and stories about events and news in the school and community to the online news site. The money will be used to purchase camcorders, a still camera and desktop microphones. "I am excited that we received this grant to work on broadcasts, which is an important component in a journalism career today," said sophomore Rebecca Watters. The Knight Times publishes six issues annually and has received several awards.
