The Student News Site of Las Vegas Academy of the Arts





Accolades is the online news site of Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, a public magnet school in the Clark County School District. Our historic campus is located in the Arts District of Downtown Las Vegas. Students must audition to attend and, in addition to the standard core classes, take classes in music, theater, visual arts, dance, and/or multimedia communications.

Accolades is a student-led publication, and content does not necessarily represent the views of the entire student community, the school administration, or the district. Accolades is public forum for student expression where students make all decisions of content.

Accolades may accept letters to the editor, guest columns and news releases from students, faculty, administrators, community residents and the general public. We ask that letters to the editor, guest columns or other submissions be 300 words or less and contain the author’s name, address, phone number and email address. All submissions will be verified. 

Submissions by anyone outside LVA must be submitted via email at [email protected] and include the author’s name, address, phone number and email address. All submissions will be verified.

Corrections Policies 

  1. Concerns about errors in the school media may be submitted through the adviser, the phone number to the publication room is 702-799-7800 (ext. 4300). Email is [email protected].
  2. The editorial board retains the right to determine whether, in fact, an error has been made.
  3. Known and or found errors that are brought to the attention of the school media will be addressed regardless if realized by the author, audience, or staff member.
  4. Staff members will strive to correct errors prior to publication; however, if the editorial board determines a significant error is printed, the editorial board will determine the manner and timeliness of a correction.
  5. Major corrections are determined by the editors and adviser.
  6. If changes are made to a web story once a story has been posted, the change will be noted along with the date and time the change was made.
