Signs of summer vacation: yearbooks, finals, tans, job applications, shorts, sandals, and heat.

Summer is teasing students.  It is peeking around corners, giggling, and running away.  The beautiful freedom of summer is merely days away!

The goals of next year are looming in the distance, yet the joy of a vacation well deserved is waiting like an anxious relative in an airport dying to see you.

What are you most excited about as summer rolls around?  Who will you miss most?  What are your plans?

« Back to The Vox Box

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at http://voxxiez.blogspot.com.
