MIPA Journalism Challenge #2 was for Editorial (written) and Broadcast Story. Topics were emailed to MIPA members on October 18 and teams had until November 1 to submit their work.

The results are in!

Editorial

First Place: Editorial by Daniel Harper of Liberty North HS

From the Judge: The award-winning editorial from the Eagle’s View staff takes a strong stance and backs it with clear, factual information. While the stance may seem more controversial from a teenage perspective, the supporting arguments make the position logical and persuasive. Someone who agreed or disagreed with the staff’s argument would be hard-pressed to not think critically about the other side. The strong persuasive language, quotes from authority figures and researched claims make this editorial stand out. Proofread carefully to avoid sentence-level errors that can distract from the overall strength of your collective voice.

Second Place: Brenna Jones, Hermann High School

Third Place: Claire Grissum, Boonville High School

Broadcast Story

First Place: “Nick Dierking’s Career Path” by Jaden Heien, Jon Amlong, Molly Eckelkamp, Emma Piar-Shaw, Washington HS

From the Judge: The award-winning broadcast, ‘Nick Dierking’s Career Path: Auto Tech,’ does an excellent job framing the crisis of the skills gap and encouraging students to look beyond the four-year college option that is often seen as the only option after high school. The reporters open up the conversation by acknowledging that a college education may not be for everyone, and that young people should be encouraged to consider hands-on careers. Highlighting the Four Rivers Career Center and acknowledging that the American workforce needs skilled workers is effective, and there are consistently well-shot scenes that clearly illustrate the well-written reporting read by the narrator. The fact that Nick is specifically featured allows students to hear from a peer, in his own voice, how meaningful and beneficial workforce training can be.

Second Place: “Skill Gap in America” by Tayler Gilbert, Jack Crisman, Spencer Pennington, Liberty North

Third Place: “Automotive Technology” by Lydia Juengling, Cason Suggs, Autumn Osia, Megan Yenzer, Washington HS
