JEA/NSPA Fall National High School Journalism Convention
Nov. 1-4, 2018 | Hyatt Regency | Chicago
The National High School Journalism Convention is a semi-annual gathering of high school journalists and advisers sponsored by National Scholastic Press Association and its partner, the Journalism Education Association. The associations partner to prepare nearly 400 practical and professional learning sessions, from high-profile keynotes to specific, problem-solving breakouts, hands-on workshops and discussion groups. Other convention activities include an exhibit hall with vendors who sell to student media, JEA’s on-site Write-off contests, NSPA’s Best of Show contest, receptions, awards convocations, critiques, career roundtables and evening entertainment.
Breakout sessions for students from all media types – newspaper, online, broadcast, yearbook and magazine – are planned to meet the publishing and broadcasting needs of all scholastic student media. Some are specifically for advisers, administrators or middle school students. Whether it’s ethics and law, technology and design, advertising and business operations, photography and art or just the basics of news writing and reporting, this convention covers the bases.
With typical attendance of more than 4,000 delegates, the JEA/NSPA convention has become the place to seek solutions to the most challenging publishing and broadcasting problems, share and celebrate success stories, see what’s new in the media marketplace, discover trends and network with students and advisers from throughout the United States.
