Last month, the National Scholastic Press Association awarded a 2012 Redwood graduate with the Editorial Cartoon of the Year award.

Bryce Snyder, a former cartoonist for The Redwood Bark, received first place in the nation for his cartoon about government restricting Internet access for students.

“The use of stark, clean line work does a good job of conveying the power differential between a faceless Congress and students,” the judges said in their published comments.

Bark advisor Tom Sivertsen said that he was surprised at the award, as the Bark had never before won an editorial cartoon award before.

“I never know what to expect with national awards,” Sivertsen said. “Bryce Snyder is a insightful cartoonist with a great sense of humor.”

Snyder was a frequent Bark cartoonist when he attended Redwood.
