Did your students take a picture that blew everyone away? Or maybe the last story for your school paper made heads turn. Perhaps your students designed a brilliantly clever cartoon or piece of artwork for your literary magazine. Or maybe your latest news broadcast got the attention of your whole school. Now is the time to earn statewide recognition. The road to the PA State Journalism Contest Finals starts at one of six upcoming Regional Contests:
PSU Behrend: Oct. 20
PSU Altoona: Oct. 27
PSU Berks: Nov. 3
Point Park University: Nov. 3
Temple University: Nov. 8
Harrisburg Area Community College: Nov. 14
