Congratulations to the following KSPA-member staffs who earned All-Kansas status for their news publications, news websites or video news programs.

For news publications, our judges critiqued at total of 37 books and awarded 20 All-Kansas awards. Two video news programs from the four submitted were awarded All-Kansas. And in news websites, five entries were chosen from 15 submissions. Judges were supplied critique booklets and a copy (or link to) of the entry in March. The completed electronic critique booklets will be emailed back to each adviser.

Each All-Kansas school earns an All-Kansas plaque. Winners will be announced and presented with the plaque at the KSPA State Contest opening ceremony May 6, 2017 at the Kansas Union at the University of Kansas.

Please contact KSPA by email with any questions or corrections.
