104 Students Take National Honors In NFPW's 2014 High School Communications Contest

The NFPW Education Fund Board is pleased to announce 104 students received national honors in the 2014 National Federation of Press Women High School Communications Contest. Download the winners list and press release

The annual contest, endorsed by the National Association of Secondary School Principals and covered by the Dow Jones News Fund Adviser Update, is the only nationwide competition of its kind. This year, 188 of the 890 entries competed at the national level, and 85 entries created by 104 students received national honors.

Winners receive certificates and recognition at state and national awards ceremonies. The national recognition will be Sept. 5 during the 2014 NFPW Communications Conference in Greenville, S.C. Each first-place winner at the national level will receive a $100 cash prize.

NFPW — a nationwide organization of women and men with diverse roles in communications — sponsors the two-tier contest each year, believing it is vital to encourage the next generation to pursue excellence and perhaps a career in the rapidly changing field of journalism and the broader fields of professional communications.
