Scholarship Opportunity

The deadline for submitting names for the NSPA Journalism Honor Roll is Feb. 17. Students must have earned a 3.75 cumulative GPA, have been on a NSPA member staff for at least one year and be endorsed by the adviser as having made strong contributions to journalism.

Graduating seniors on the Honor Roll may apply for an Honor Roll Scholarship. All students on the Honor Roll will be included in the next volume of Best of the High School Press and will receive an award certificate.

The application is available at the Form Central section of our Web site: This is not a postmark deadline. Forms must be received by Feb. 17.

The Wikoff Scholarship for Editorial Leadership applications are also due Feb. 17. Entrants must be a senior on the staff of an NSPA member newspaper with a minimum 3.5 grade point average and must also submit three published editorials, a transcript and a brief letter of recommendation from the paper's adviser.
