On-Site Critiques

Constructive criticism flows freely in newsrooms everywhere. Journalists must learn how to accept and apply this criticism in the early stages of their careers. On-site critiques at Press Day offer constructive criticism students and advisers can take back to the newsroom.

Representatives from each participating school will have the opportunity to meet with their critiquer for at least a half hour. This is a one-on-one opportunity for someone knowledgeable in the field to critique the high school newspaper from an objective point of view; someone not associated with the paper.

High schools interested in participating must submit advance copies of an edition to ensure a thorough examination of the paper. Several faculty members and members of the professional field will be on hand to critique the editions.

Entries must be postmarked by March 24 to be considered for awards!
