WHERE IT ALL STARTS — WITH YOU THE TEACHERS AND THOSE WHO SUPPORT YOU!

The Illinois Journalism Education Association sponsors a number of awards to recognize the efforts of high school journalism educators. We also honor school administrators and members of the public who support scholastic journalism.

No matter where the recipients of these awards do their work — in front of a classroom, in a district administrative office or in a professional newsroom — they have one important thing in common. By their actions, they teach our students that high school journalism matters.
