Celebrate your year with MIPA!
We’re excited about celebrating journalism and presenting awards to Michigan students.
MIPA’s annual Spring Awards Celebration recognizes students and advisers for their outstanding work in the past school year. For 2022, we’re streaming this event live on MIPA’s YouTube channel over several days. There is not an in-person event this year. View a schedule of our awards announcements and contest results after they are announced
Award announcements include Individual Category Contests for yearbook, newspaper, digital media and video production; Golden Pen; and MIPA’s all-state Student Journalist Staff!
Order Honor Cords
Outstanding graduating seniors at MIPA member student media outlets are invited to wear MIPA student media honor cords at graduation. The MIPA honor cord program is designed to be a select privilege to recognize academic achievement and superior work in journalism or school media. Cords must be ordered by student media advisers, who are responsible for verifying that students meet the spirit of this honors program.
- Pre-orders for pickup at the Spring Awards must be placed two weeks before the event date. MIPA cannot guarantee we will have enough cords in stock if you do not pre-order.
- Cords can be shipped directly to your school.
- Order cords or learn more
Students can participate in one of our special spring contests for one more chance to win an award! Click on the contest to learn more.
Annual Meeting & Elections
Advisers: MIPA’s annual meeting will take place via Zoom at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 23. A link will be distributed to member advisers. We hope you can attend.
Elections for MIPA’s board will occur via email ballot AFTER the event. The field of candidates will be finalized at the annual meeting and members will receive report on the operations of the organization.
MIPA’s annual contests recognize students for their individual work and the collective work of their student media outlet. The organization also occasionally recognizes advisers, administrators and other supporters of scholastic journalism for their outstanding work.
