KSPA plans busy 2010-2011 calendar, so join now

The 2010-2011 schedule of activities and contests for the Kansas Scholastic Press Association could very well be the busiest ever, and it will culminate, as always, with regional and state competitions next spring.

Fall Conferences are already being planned for Lawrence, Manhattan and Hays, the second Statehouse Reporter Day in Topeka will highlight the winter schedule, while All-Kansas critique services will now include websites in addition to the traditional print publications.

In order to take advantage of all these learning opportunities, of course, journalism advisers must be members of KSPA. You can read more about the membership benefits and how to join KSPA by going to the Membership Information page. Or you can just download the membership form.

You can see the entire calendar below or you can download the PDF and print it (and tape numerous copies around your journalism office at school, and maybe even put one on your refrigerator at home).
