About the Contest


To be eligible for this year’s contest, your students’ work must have been published between March 15 of the previous school year and March 15 of the current school year. The eligibility window includes work published on March 15 of either year.

General information about the contest and specific instructions concerning categories and submissions are available at the contest homepage.

Advisers, please note: In order to enter your students’ work in this contest, you must be a member of IJEA. Membership dues are $25 per year.

To join IJEA, please complete and submit our online membership form OR our PDF form. In either case, mail your $25 membership fee to: Katie Comeford Fernandez, IJEA Treasurer, 2221 W. Belmont Ave. #204, Chicago, IL 60618. All necessary payment instructions are included in both the online and PDF membership forms. For more information about IJEA membership, click here.

As a benefit, each member is entitled to waive the $10 contest fee for one of our two publication contests (newspaper and yearbook). So if a member advises just newspaper and enters the contest, then there is no fee. If a member advises both newspaper and yearbook and enters both contests, the member would pay just one of the contest fees.
