The Bruin Voice


“The Bruin Voice” has served as Bear Creek High School’s student newspaper since 1991.  Starting with a staff of only eight students, the publication, then known as “Bear Tracks,” coined its motto “The Voice shall not be silenced” after early attempts by the administration to censor the newspaper. Since that time, the newspaper has gone on to win the National Scholastic Press Association’s National Pacemaker Award two times, and 1st Place Best of Show trophies seven times. We were nominated for the Pacemaker again in 2015 and students went to the convention in Orlando to accept their nomination, but sadly did not receive the award. Students have also won numerous individual awards from the Journalism Education Association, the San Joaquin Valley Scholastic Press Association, and various local, regional and national competitions.

The students most recently led the effort to curtail an illegal social media policy imposed by the Lodi Unified School District with the help from the Student Press Law Center and the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California. 

In 2014, the publication entered the digital world with the launch of With this website, we hope to expose our viewers to the news they want and need to know through a whole new perspective.
