High School Journalist of the Year Competition:
See JEA's JOY page for all the details, but the national criteria has gone completely digital for the portfolio submission so Nebraska is doing the same. We will follow the same criteria listed at the above JEA website. The state deadline is Feb. 15. It is a new process, but the best suggestion we've heard so far is to build a website with your portfolio. Wordpress is a great place to start. The JEA website has samples and ideas to get you started. Watch for more information in January, but start motivating your best and brightest right away.
Congratulations to Nebraska's JEA Lifetime Achievement Adviser Award Winners:
Bob Bair (former adviser at Blair High School) and Diane Schutt (former adviser at Fairbury High School), are the most recent. They received their awards in Washington, D.C. in November 2014.
They join these other Nebraska journalism teacher legends who have also received the award: Rod Howe (2013), Dianne Kuppig (2013), Ann Quinlan (2013), Sharleen Ball (2012), Janet Raddish (2012), Dale Schwalm (2011), Linda Crandall (2010), Sheila Pedersen (2006), Gary Raaberg (2005), Kathy Stockham (2005), Sherry Tonniges (2005).
