Annotated Critique ($149): Formerly called the Super Critique, the comments from the judge along with the scoring/honor rating are delivered to the staff on the membership portal. However, additional comments are placed directly within the publication or broadcast. Print publications submitted as PDF files will be annotated with digital notes. Print yearbooks will be annotated by writing directly on the pages. Broadcasts will be annotated using VideoAnt, a web-based video annotation tool. The Annotated Critique is available for all student media except online. There is a $25 (domestic) or $50 (international) charge for annotated yearbook shipping and handling.
National Scholastic Press Association established a Hall of Fame for member student publications in 1987.
Inducted into the Hall of Fame are newspapers, yearbooks and magazines that have earned 10 All-American ratings from our publication critique service within an 11-year span. Hall of Fame inductees receive a special honor plaque to mark the induction. They are added to the NSPA Hall of Fame page, plaque and banner, which are displayed at our journalism conventions.
New Hall of Fame inductions are made twice a year and are honored at our journalism conventions.
To apply for Hall of Fame status, write a letter indicating the name of the publication, the years the publication received All-American ratings and publication/adviser contact information.
