The Minnesota High School Press Association’s annual convention returns in person this year.
We’re set for Thursday, Oct. 13 —
from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Laura Widmer, MHSPA executive director, will lead a panel with two leaders in community journalism.
Azhae’la Hanson is a reporter and youth program coordinator for North News, the community print and digital news publication that focuses on North Minneapolis where she grew up and currently resides. A recent graduate of Xavier University (Louisiana), she hopes her work as a journalist inspires youth and community members to create and celebrate their own narratives.
Hard work and dedication to her multi-generational family and family business has always been Tracey Lynn Williams-Dillard’s main focus. Tracey has the responsibility of running the day-to-day operations of the Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder as well as providing leadership direction to move the business forward. Her vision, passion and commitment to take the newspaper into the future are the main reasons that it continues to this day, more than eight decades since its founding.
