It’s all about your students at the MIPA Awards and On-Site Contests Conference.

We’re excited about celebrating journalism and presenting awards to Michigan students.

And reserve spots for your students in the On-Site Contests! (Do this if you are not ready to register for the conference yet, but want to reserve contest space.)

Once again, this year’s MIPA Spring Conference is focused on awards — lots of awards! Most students will meet for the exciting awards presentation in the morning, while others will take part in the On-Site Contests.

Enjoy watching all of the awards MIPA will be presenting in the morning. They include Individual Category Contests for yearbook, newspaper, new media and video production; Golden Pen;  All-MIPA; and Student Journalist.

Awards will continue in the afternoon and we’ll end with the Spartan Awards presentation.

Enter On-Site Contests. Sign your students up for the contests! On-Site Contest winners will be announced on the MIPA website on Thursday morning, two days after the event.

Take advantage of our two-week contest where video students will shoot video on an announced topic for two weeks before the conference. See On-Site Contest details here.

See winning videos produced by MIPA member schools. Learn more about summer opportunities.

Advisers, meet up with your adviser friends during the adviser luncheon and network with others throughout the day. The annual MIPA business meeting will take place at the luncheon. Students have lunch on their own.
