Learn about JEA's Journalist of the Year scholarship competition with program coordinator Joe Humphrey. He will look at the process, the rubric, best practices for creating a student portfolio and more.
This video is the recorded session from the Fall JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention. Student journalists asked questions about the Journalist of the Year application process.
Please note two updates that have been made after production of these videos:
