J Day Award Winners Announced

Thank you to the nearly 1300 students and advisers who traveled to the University of Missouri-Columbia on March 28 for the 49th annual J Day celebration of student journalism! And congratulations to the more than 1,200 total state winners honored in Overall and Individual contests. 

MIPA recognizes All-Missouri, Superior, Excellent and Honorable Mention work with certificates. MIPA judges chose roughly the top 10% of the entries to recognize as All-Missouri award winners. 

A complete list of individual and overall contest winners is available at: http://mipajournalism.com/j-day-awards-lists/

If you attended J Day but missed the awards ceremony, you can still find out the J Day Write-Off Winners and the J Day Photo Shoot Winners.as well as the Photo Shoot-Off PowerPoint that includes their photos.  Thank you to all who participated!

We would like to thank our nearly 70 judges who reviewed the roughly 1,800 entries this year. Judges range from journalism teachers and professors to professional journalists from across the country. Without their time, commitment and feedback, scholastic journalists across the state would not have the opportunity to learn and improve.
