 Humboldt jerds rule! (That’s nerd + journalist.)

For the 10th year in a row, Humboldt High School’s journalism students — the jerds — have picked up a state championship.

No other school in the state of Kansas, no matter how large or small, has achieved 10 state journalism championships, let alone consecutive titles, journalism teacher Kim Isbell said. Altogether, Humboldt has 24 state titles since the state journalism contest began.
