High School Journalist of the Year Competition:

Nebraska Entry Form

See JEA's JOY page for all the details, but the national criteria is completely digital for the portfolio submission so Nebraska does the same. We will follow the same criteria listed at the above JEA website. The state deadline is Feb. 15. Applicants should build a website with your portfolio. Wordpress or Wix 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:
