MIPA’s Student Journalist Staff annually recognizes Michigan’s top student journalists. This is our all-state student journalist team. Members of the Student Journalist Staff are graduating students who excel at their student media outlets. They are selected based on portfolios of their work.
From among the members of the Student Journalist Staff, MIPA will honor a student as All-MIPA in each the following areas — news writing & reporting, news design, yearbook, video, photojournalism and multiplatform. All-MIPA honorees are the best of the best in their area of primary focus. In addition, one member of the Student Journalist Staff will be selected as Michigan’s representative in the Journalism Education Association’s national Journalist of the Year competition.
Student Journalist Staff members will be recognized at the MIPA Spring Awards & On-Site Contests in April.
