MIPA has run a summer program with our partners at the Michigan State University School of Journalism since 1984. We took our program online for the first time in summer 2020 in response to the global coronavirus pandemic. Along with all other Michigan State University youth programs, we are offering an online-only program again for summer 2021.
MIPA stands for the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association. We’re a statewide nonprofit group of middle and high school journalism and media production programs across the state. Our members are the school newspapers, yearbooks, video programs and news websites at schools all over the state of Michigan. We provide a variety of programming throughout the school year, including conferences and contests. We’ve been based in the MSU School of Journalism since 1982, but our organization was founded in 1921. Learn more about MIPA
