Can’t win if you don’t enter…


The nation’s oldest regional journalism contest is now closed for the 68th time.

We’ve sent all entries out to be judged by professionals with no ties to the contest. They’re perusing them now.

We can already tell you something about next year’s contest, though. Because we like tradition…

Members of the Society of Professional Journalists will still pay $40 per entry, while non-members will still pay $60 per entry. Those prices haven’t changed in nine years, and all college entries remain a measly $20 per.

Every dollar after expenses is spent on journalists like you, for all kinds of training programs. The Green Eyeshade directors are volunteers, as are the judges from all over the country.

Stay tuned.
