All Minnesota high school and junior high school student journalists are eligible for the 2008 Gold Medallion Awards. Entries must arrive (not be postmarked) at MHSPA by Sept. 10 to be eligible. MHSPA recommends that advisers review all entries prior to submission. Winners will be announced at MHSPA’s Minnesota State High School Journalism Convention on Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2008. Winners will receive award certificates. MHSPA reserves the right to publish winners and submissions on its website and in its publications.

MHSPA members enter for free. Non-members pay $5 per entry. All entries must have been published in your 2007-2008 school year newspaper/newsmagazine, yearbook or literary/feature magazine or by broadcast students. Two entries from each school may be entered in each sub-category. See the attached call for entries for categories, additional rules and submission requirements.

They’re not due until Sept. 10, but why not send them in this spring instead?
