All-Kansas critiques

The All-Kansas critique service provides advisers and their students with insightful commentary on what you do well and how you could improve your news publication, yearbook, video news program and/or your news website. It also evaluates each medium to determine and reward the very best in Kansas.

Our critique booklets

When we send your publications to our nationwide judges, we also send along a critique booklet that guides their comments and ranking. You can find each critique booklet below. A great classroom activity is allowing your editors (or even your readers) to evaluate the publication for these criteria.

The winners

Some of the nation’s top high school journalism advisers read and evaluate each publication, program or site that comes to them, and they create a thorough report for adviser and students. One judge will evaluate each classification, so that judge will see all entries from a class. The best of the publications achieve All-Kansas status for that year.
