One of the Minnesota High School Press Associations’s (MHSPA) goals is to provide students with the tools they need to become better journalists; educational programs taught by journalism experts are a way to meet that goal.
The NSPA/MHSPA Summer Workshop at the University of Minnesota is an intensive residential program taught by top journalism educators and professionals from around the country. MHSPA’s state high school journalism convention in the fall will be the first of many learning opportunities this year.
MHSPA also provides recognition of outstanding publications and exceptional student work with a variety of awards. The end-of-year Gold Medallion awards for outstanding individual achievement in writing and design for newspaper, yearbook and magazine are presented each fall at the state convention as are convention Best of Show contests. In the spring, advisers can recognize their students with nominations for North Star Journalist Awards honor status. These opportunities are sponsored by MHSPA at no additional charge for MHSPA members.
All Minnesota members of the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) are automatically members of MHSPA. What better way to get scholastic journalism really rocking in our state?
