PMCT publications have received five different top honors in the 2010 NYSUT Journalism Awards. The PMCT Publications Committee chaired by PMHS teachers Ellen DiFazio and Mike Scholz and the PMCT.org website organized by PMHS teachers Kathy Bucaria-Webmaster, Ellen DiFazio-Graphic Artist and Christina Paino-Editor have been singled out in five categories for outstanding journalism. The PMCT.org website has been named "Best Website" of all NYSUT participating school districts. The PMCT publication CONNECTIONS won First Place Honors for "Best News Story" and "Best Opinion Writing" and an Award of Merit for "Best Feature Story". The PMCT publication "Speak Out" was awarded first place honors for "Best Newsletter".

These publications discuss current issues facing all teachers, successes and accomplishments of teachers and students within the Pat-Med district, and human interest stories that appeal to all. The Patchogue-Medford Congress of Teachers congratulates Ellen, Mike, Kathy and Chris and all PMCT members that contribute to these publications for these outstanding awards.
