Every year, the Toronto Star acknowledges the work produced by outstanding high school newspapers though the High School Newspaper Awards (HSNA). The awards are sectioned into 21 distinct categories ranging from classical writing styles including reporting and opinion writing, to more liberal and light-hearted sections, such as illustration and humour.

In 2015, staff from The Reckoner won 12 awards in 10 different categories. More information can be found here.
