Announcing the 2020 All-Kansas publications

Congratulations to the following KSPA-member staffs for earning All-Kansas status for their news publications, news websites and video news publications.

This year, our judges critiqued a total of 29 news publications, 12 news websites and four video news publications. 19 of those publications were awarded with All-Kansas distinction. Completed electronic critique booklets will be emailed to all advisers next week.

Each All-Kansas school earns an All-Kansas Plaque. Plaques will be mailed to advisers next week, as this year’s on-site State Contest has been moved online in response to the news coronavirus. Winners will be announced Saturday on KSPA’s Twitter

We thank all staffs for participating in our contest, despite uncertain circumstances. It is very hopeful to see so many brilliant staffs continuing their coverage from a distance.

Please contact KSPA by email with any questions or corrections.
