Fall 2021

The Fall JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention has shifted to an online platform.

More than 100 on-demand breakout session videos will be available to attendees from Nov. 1 to Jan. 15, 2022.

We are not accepting new speaker proposals at this time. Speakers who received confirmation that their session was accepted for the online programming should follow the instructions below to submit the session recording.

Videos are due by Oct. 25. Please submit the video file or download link through the online form. If your video is larger than 10GB, please contact Porter@jea.org for alternative submission methods.

Your session should last 20-30 minutes.

Whatever application you choose, please follow these guidelines for the recorded video.

  • We want to see your face. Don’t just record the slides with audio, please include the thumbnail video of yourself.
  • Record in front of a clean background.
  • Make sure you have adequate light that your face is clearly visible and not silhouetted with backlight.
