Student Journalist Impact Award

About the Award

The purpose of the Student Journalist Impact Award is to recognize a secondary school student (or a team of students who worked on the same entry) who, through the study and practice of journalism, has made a significant difference in his/her own life, the lives of others, the school he/she attends and/or the community in which he/she resides. (NOTE: This is not a scholarship competition. Do not send transcripts.)

This award was jointly conceived as a collaborative endeavor by the Journalism Education Association and the Kalos Kagathos Foundation. The award recognizes secondary school students who, through the practice of journalism, have made a significant difference in the lives of others.
