“More to the story”
#SJW2023, #MoreToTheStory
Feb. 20-24, 2023

The Journalism Education Association has scheduled Scholastic Journalism Week for Feb. 20-24, 2023. Apply to be featured on the JEA Twitter during Scholastic Journalism Week. We also will email a certificate your school administrators with props and kudos to the great work you are doing.

This year’s theme is “More to the story.”

Daily focus:

Monday, Feb. 20: Truth in reporting
Tuesday, Feb. 21: Balanced reporting
Wednesday, Feb. 22: Inclusive reporting
Thursday, Feb. 23: Student Press Freedom Day
Friday, Feb. 24: In-depth reporting

Throughout the week, and throughout the year, we ask that you use the hashtags #SJW2023 and #MoreToTheStory when you share works of journalism from your staff, reminding your community of the importance of scholastic journalism. You can do this on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.


JEA wants to feature schools, putting a major focus on the many ways in which scholastic newsrooms around the country are diverse.
