Student Journalism Contest Accepting Entries
Portland Community College [All Campuses] — The Pacific Northwest Association of Journalism Educators is announcing its first annual student journalism contest, open to community college publications – print and/or on-line – in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. This is a regional contest designed exclusively for community colleges (even if we’ve dropped “community” from our name).
Last fall, at its annual meeting, PNAJE agreed to absorb the WCCJA (Washington Community College Journalism Association) contest, which had operated for seven years, in order to extend it from a state-centric to a regional community college contest.
We’ve also dropped the annual awards luncheon. Awards, in the form of certificates and trophies, will be mailed directly to the winners’ newsroom or adviser.
Entry fee is $5 per individual entry and $10 for general excellence. Please read the contest rules and directions carefully to avoid potential disqualification of entries. For this, our first year, membership in PNAJE is not required to enter the contest.
We hope you enter and make this contest an ongoing success. Entries need to be postmarked by March 30.
If you have any questions or would like a copy of the eligibility and rules, please do not hesitate to email Michael Parks at Pierce College in Fort Steilacoom (how’s that for a cool name?) (email@example.com) or call (253-964-6513).
