Hawaii Scholastic Journalism Association

Next Meeting
Our next meeting will be Saturday, January 25 at 10 a.m. in W123 at McKinley High School.
Student Press Law Center Virtual Speakers Bureau
The Student Press Law Center in Washington D.C. hosted a webinar called Student Press Rights 101 especially for Hawaii teachers and students on Dec. 6. If you missed it and would like to host one for your own school, visit https://splc.org/speakers/ and register for a webinar for your own classroom.
Student Press Freedom Day is Jan. 29, 2020!
Spread the word: Student Press Freedom Day is Jan. 29, 2020! This year's theme is "This Is What Student Press Freedom Looks Like." Whether it's a "day in the life" video, a photo essay, a public event, an op-ed, or something entirely different, SPLC wants to help you show the world the reality of being a student journalist and why student journalism is so important. (And we may be able to help you pay for it!) https://splc.org/student-press-freedom-day/
