Kansas middle schools earn dozens of awards

Congratulations to the Kansas middle school students who placed in this year’s Journalism Education Association national media contest. Students from Andover, Derby North and Turner middle schools earned a total of 28 awards for the state of Kansas. Three of the 35 superior awards also went to Kansas students.

Here are some details on the contest from JEA’s website:

There were 367 entries in the 16 yearbook, newspaper, broadcast and photography categories. Judging for entries took place between April 18-May 8 by a committee of experienced judges from across the country.

Student entries from 34 schools in 13 states were ranked with Superior, Excellent and Honorable Mention ratings. In total, 35 Superior, 154 Excellent and 137 Honorable Mention certificates were given. Superior winners each received a medal.

If you advise a junior high or middle school publication, watch for details about the 2020 contest in January.
