Baruch College’s NYC High School Journalism Conference and NEWSIES! Awards Are Set for November 8, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The 16th annual High School Journalism Conference will serve more than 200 high school student journalists and teacher-advisers from all five of Manhattan’s boroughs. The day on Baruch’s Manhattan campus offers students and advisers the opportunity to participate in workshops with journalism educators and journalists, along with a plenary news conference and the Newsies! award ceremony. A pizza lunch will be provided.
We will be holding a best high school newspaper competition during the conference with judges on hand to review your entries. Accordingly, this year we invite each school to bring three copies of one issue of your newspaper — or three sheets of paper containing the url for your online newspaper and the name of your school and your name and contact information — to registration by 9:30 a.m. on November 8.
Please check out the Newsies! 2019 submission guidelines here: Entering Newsies!
This year, in addition to providing certificates to NEWSIES! winners in nine categories, we also will be acknowledging the hard work of high school newspaper advisers with certificates.
Register by emailing email@example.com with the subject line “2019 Conference RSVP.” Each school may bring up to six students accompanied by at least one teacher-adviser.
