Some Warm Opportunities To Thaw Those Long, Cold Days At Home

Answer: 54 picas.

Question: In printing measurement, how deep is the snow at my house?

I know some of you have more snow and maybe no electricity, and all of us are worried about how we catch up once we’re back on the job…at the job. I can picture many of you communicating with students as you work at home on yearbook proofs.

Perhaps this is a good time to think about something positive and remind everyone about some good opportunities for your students.

Hoosier Star newspapers and sports contest entries are due Jan. 31. The membership form on the IHSPA website serves as the entry form for the critique. Consequently, many of you have already paid for the service and only need to send three consecutive issues from the first semester of this year to me.

We will continue the sports competition with both sports reporting and sports photography from first semester through the January 31 deadline. Once again winners will receive awards at the First Amendment Symposium and have the opportunity to attend the 500 Media Day in May or an Indiana Pacers practice and interview session.

Student Journalist of the Year portfolios should be sent to me by Feb. 14. Seniors are encouraged to enter Student Journalist of the Year competition following requirements set by JEA on the JEA.org website. The JEA website also offers tips for preparing the portfolio, but I can answer questions as well. Finalists and scholarship winners will be introduced at the First Amendment Symposium, at the Indiana Statehouse March 5 from 407 pm. This year’s symposium features keynote speaker Mary Beth Tinker.

Contests for the First Amendment Symposium include a new category: Government Reporting. I have already seen examples for this category in exchange newspapers. I hope many staffs will enter the great work they have been doing to inform students about issues that affect them. Deadline: Feb. 14.

First Amendment poster design and the First Amendment essay return as additional contests. Deadline: Feb. 14.

Feel welcome to copy the information on the website to share with students. All deadlines and information are listed, but anyone with questions should feel welcome to contact me. dhadley@franklincollege.edu Office Phone: 317.738.8199 or Cell: 317.341.4360
