The CA Press Women’s and the National Federation of Press Women’s High School Communications Contest inspires students to do their best work, which earns them recognition and reflects well on their teachers and advisers. The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed the contest on its “NASSP National Advisory List of Contests and Activities,” which can be found on the website

In the contest, students may enter work in one of 20 categories: Editorial, Opinion, News Story, Feature Story, Sports Story, Columns, Feature Photo, Sports Photo, Cartooning, Review, Graphics/Photo Illustration, Single-Page Layout, Double-Truck Layout, Environment, Video News Story, Video Feature Story, Video Sports Story, Yearbook Layout, Yearbook Photo and Yearbook Copywriting. You will note that this year the yearbook category has been enlarged to three separate areas of recognition.

The student’s work must have been completed between March 1, 2012, and February 28, 2013. All entries are to be received by March 11th. Please send to Betty Packard, CPW Contest Director, 1419 De Haro Street, San Francisco CA 94107. Entry fee is $3 per entry and an entry written by multiple authors is classified as one entry. Please make check payable to California Press Women. For further information: [email protected]

State winners are recognized at an awards program and networking party in early May. National student winners, their parents and advisers are invited to attend the NFPW High School Communications Contest Awards Luncheon, Aug. 24, 2013, during the annual NFPW conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.
