2023 Hawaii Journalist of the Year Application Information


Each year JEA and the state of Hawaii recognize a student Journalist of the Year.

The HiJOY requirements are different from the national contest. The HiJOY requirements are still being determined but here is a link to the work-in-progress.

Please email [email protected] with any questions.

The student must email [email protected] by Jan. 15, 2023, to indicate intent to participate so the state JEA director can find the necessary number of judges.

The deadline for application entry for Hawaii is Feb. 15., 2023. All submissions will be online. The online entry form is located here: https://goo.gl/J6mFNn
