State Contest Open!
In the midst of this crisis, journalism is more critical than ever before. Our State Contest allows student journalists in Kansas — even during school building closures — to practice and compete. Our contest is open today, including registration, state-only prompts and explanations on how “previously on-site” contests will work.
Providing support and leadership in scholastic journalism
The Kansas Scholastic Press Association is a non-profit organization composed of Kansas scholastic journalism students and their teachers. The organization is committed to excellence in journalism at all levels and views its focus as one of providing journalism education leadership for Kansas teachers and students. The KSPA provides a support system through its contests, conferences and scheduled activities.
