This past February, the deadline for the Journalism Education Association’s Journalist of the Year competition came and went without any portfolios being received in our state. Therefore, no Minnesota student was represented at the National High School Journalism Convention in Phoenix. MHSPA and Journalism Educators of Minnesota are offering one more chance to submit portfolios to be recognized for exemplary work. Participants must be seniors planning on majoring in journalism and/or mass communications and whose advisers are members of the Journalism Education Association.

The winner will receive a $300 scholarship from Journalism Educators of Minnesota. Entries must be received by May 15. The portfolio must fill the requirements listed on the flyer, which can be downloaded here: Updated Journalist of the Year Flyer
