First Amendment Contests, Projects Challenge Students’ Creativity

IHSPA Members:

Recent emails and Facebook messages indicate that many advisers were as busy during the holiday break as they are when school is in session. I hope everyone has been able to complete first semester responsibilities, and the New Year seems like a fresh start.

As you look at the opportunities for your students and publications to participate and compete, feel welcome to contact me with specific questions.

In the meantime, let me promote the First Amendment contests.

First Amendment Essay Contest

The essay should be double spaced and 300-500 words. IHSPA is using the same essay question for the First Amendment contest as the Society of Professional Journalists 2013 competition.

“Why is it important that we have news media that are independent of the government?”

 IHSPA will pay the entry fee and send in the winning entry to SPJ prior to the symposium. All entries should be sent to me but include the SPJ entry form that can be downloaded from the SPJ website here.

David Adams First Amendment Projects

These entries can be posters or t-shirt designs that promote the First Amendment or any educational project that encourages First Amendment freedoms in the school or community. (The more creative the entries the more categories we can give awards.)

Feel welcome to contact me with questions about any of the contests or events. More information about the symposium program will be provided soon.
