Leading the way in scholastic journalism & media education since 1924

Board of Judges

Each year, the Journalism Education Association enlists the service of hundreds of volunteers to serve as judges for various awards, contests and competitions. These educators and professionals represent the highest tier of expertise in their respective fields, and their service makes JEA programming possible.
