The National High School Journalism Convention is a semiannual gathering of high school journalists and advisers co-sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. With typical attendance of more than 5,000 delegates, the JEA/NSPA convention is the largest gathering of student journalists in the country.
MHSPA, a division of NSPA, provides journalism education training programs, publishes journalism education materials, provides recognition programs for members, provides information on developments in journalism and student media and provides a forum for members to communicate with others and share their work. Through these activities, MHSPA promotes the standards and ethics of good journalism as accepted and practiced by print, broadcast and electronic media in Minnesota.
