Symposium Continues To Evolve

Diana Hadley

I hope IHSPA members are planning to celebrate the end of February with a trip to the Indiana Statehouse this Wednesday, March 3, for the fourth annual First Amendment Symposium.  The Indianapolis weather report is First Amendment friendly with just two days to go.

This year’s program has multiple high interest features. IHSPA student journalists will share information about and personal appreciation for the five freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment.

Since the first symposium in 2007, the event has evolved to include the announcement of the 2010 Indiana Student Journalist of the Year.

This year’s program will honor seven finalists who have led their high school publications programs. The accomplishments of these outstanding high school journalists should convince everyone that IHSPA has an all-star team that could compete with any group in the country.

In addition, Nick Clooney, keynote speaker for the 2009 JEA/NSPA convention in Washington D.C., is this year’s guest speaker. Students who did not have the opportunity to hear Mr. Clooney speak at the national convention will have a special treat, and those who did hear him will have the opportunity to meet him in a smaller venue.

This event requires no registration or fee, but contacting me can provide additional information and a parking pass for a van or bus.
