In conjunction with the professional contest, the NFPW Education Fund is also accepting entries for the NFPW High School Communications Contest for all middle and high school students throughout the United States. The student entries must have been published between Feb. 1, 2022, and Jan. 31, 2023.
The contest is open to middle and high school students throughout the United States. Affiliates in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania are hosting state contests. Students in other states – including Colorado – are welcome to enter the high school at-large contest.
The deadline for all student entries is Feb. 8, 2023 (at noon in their time zone). First-place entries in the affiliate and at-large contest automatically advance to the national level of competition. A second round of judging will take place for the first-place winners in the national competition. Then three judges will select a “best of the best” winner from all the winning entries. All the national winners will be announced during a Zoom ceremony in May and further honored at a luncheon on Saturday, June 24, 2023, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The NFPW high school contest is available here.
