Newspaper Article

While writing newspaper articles, one should try keeping it crisp, sharp and clean. 

It should be brief and comprehensible. 

It should be written to the point and relevant to the context. 


It should be without any flaws. 

There are different categories of newspaper articles based upon the nature of writing. 

The most prominent categories of newspaper articles are: 

News articles.

Covers current events 

Featured Articles 

Covers one particular subject with multiple angles, by being more creative and entertaining. 

Any news piece has to follow the prime questions, before becoming a newspaper article and such questions are: 

Now based on the prime questions, let’s write an article. 

Topic: school annual day celebrations .

What’s the news? School Annual Day 

Where did it happen? Boston Public School 

Who is involved? Students, teachers, parents, chief guests 

When did it happen? 9 th July 2019 

Why did it happen? To honour chief guests and appreciate students. 

How did it happen? With lots of applause and awarding laurels. 

Whatever is the article about, it mainly contains great structure to have a clear understanding for the readers. 

Structure or an outline for newspapers article: 

1. Headline

Should grab the attention of the readers. 

2. Introduction

Starts the article with the introductory details like (where & when). 

3. Opening Quotation

Should give the sense to the readers about who is involved. 

4. Main Body

Should explain the heart of the story by getting in depth of reader’s minds. 

5. Closing Quotation

Should sum up the article in a few words. 

6. Conclusion

Should end the article with a good conclusion. 

Now, let’s practice writing the article about School Annual Day Celebrations. 

Boston Public Students Won Many Laurels. 


The management and students of Boston Public School have celebrated their Annual day celebrations on Tuesday, the 9 th of July with pompous show in a splendid way. 

Opening Quotation

The US President’s secretary and the Vice chancellor of Boston University have addressed the students and bestowed their blessings to all of them. 

“Today’s students lay the pathway for a better tomorrow. So, let’s give them the ‘best today’ and hope for the ‘better tomorrow’ through them”, said the Vice Chancellor of the Boston University. The US President’s Secretary honoured the merit students with awards and the prize money. 

Closing Quotation

The event ended up well, with various cultural performances like entertaining dances, message-oriented skits, fun filled mimicries and thanking all the attendees -students, parents, management and the chief guests.

     FCAT Home > Practice Tests > The Inverted Pyramid Newspaper Article Site Map    The Inverted Pyramid Newspaper Article Newspaper reporters arrange most of the articles they write in what they call an inverted (upside-down) pyramid. An inverted pyramid story looks like this: They put the most important news at the beginning and then include the less important details as they write. These skillful writers try to put the who, what, when, where, why, and how (5 W's and H) at the beginning. They call this part the "lead." Then they add the rest of the details in the order of their importance. The least important information they put at the end. Tallahassee - A Tangelo County fourth-grader won this year's annual Florida State Spelling Bee yesterday when he spelled the word paraphernalia correctly. He is the youngest student to win the contest in its 50-year history. For his effort, Larry Johnson, a ten year-old honor student as Lemonline Elementary School, was awarded a $1,000 U.S. savings bond. In addition, he will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to represent the state of Florida in the National Spelling Bee, to be held in October. Runner-up in the contest was Tabitha Waters, an eighth-grader at Grapefruit Middle School in Baywater. Tabitha was eliminated when she misspelled ennui . She received a $500 U.S. savings bond. The winner of the National Spelling Bee will be awarded a $20,000 college scholarship to attend a college or university of his or her choice after completing high school. Students from 38 Florida counties took part in the three-day contest. Following the event, all 38 contestants were invited to dine at the Governor's Mansion. Larry is the son of Farley and Beth Johnson of Newtown. He has a sister, Linsey, who is an eighth-grade student at Newton Middle School, and a brother, Bruce, who is a first-grader at Lemonlime.
