Contests Deadline – July 1.

It’s time to reap rewards for this year’s hard work. Your staff members have written, designed and photographed some great content this year.

The Summer Newspaper and Yearbook contests  allow them to compete for awards in many categories.

Preparing your entries is simple and quick. Out-of-state professionals are standing by to judge your work.

Newspaper members: You can enter up to 73 entries (six in each of the 12 categories plus one for overall excellence), or send just one entry in one category. It’s up to you. Categories include news, opinion, features and sports writing, photography, cartooning, review writing and more.

Click here for more details,  here for the packet entry form, here for individual category entry forms, and here for an entry form for overall excellence.

Yearbook members: An experienced judge from out of state will mark a thorough critique form and give you points in each category. Explanations and the critique will accompany each returned entry. Judges will be encouraged to write in your book, pointing out specific kudos and constructive criticisms.
