Plugged In is the official school newspaper of Speedway High School. It is intended to be a public forum and letters to the editor are encouraged. JS Printing in Birmingham, AL is responsible for our print product and has been our publishing partner since the mid 2000s. Students enrolled in the high school journalism class conduct all of the reporting and news-gathering activities. Students utilize Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop to assist in our desktop publishing operation. Students in this class also participate in photography activities in conjunction with the school yearbook (Champion) team. In addition, students also work in partnership with the Speedway Town Talk and Speedway Messenger print mediums to provide weekly correspondence related to Speedway High School events. Finally, students on the Plugged In and Champion teams also provide social media content that includes materials for gosparkplugs.com.
