Junior Kate Dziewinski is a Sports Editor for the DGS Blueprint. During her sophomore year, Dziewinski took Journalistic Expression, which sparked her interest in writing. Journalism quickly turned into one of her passions.

Last year she qualified for the IHSA Journalism state competition in sports writing. She has also won two NISPA awards through her sports writing and a Best-Of-SNO. She also completed a journalism and communications mentorship program through the University of Nebraska; she hopes to attend Nebraska in 2025.

Sports are an integral part of her life. Dziewinski enjoys watching sports in her free time--ranging from professional to high school to her younger brothers' baseball games.

A typical day for Dziewinski entails getting a coffee, going to the gym and hanging out with friends. Dziewinski also works at her local Starbucks as a barista, a hair assistant at Glimmer, "Love Signs" and Dairy Queen. She is involved in Athletes Committed to Excellence, Blue Crew, Blue Print, National Honors Society, French Honors Society, PE Leaders, French Peer Tutors, Mustang Way Access Leaders and Super Fans.

Dziewinski is looking forward to developing her writing abilities.
