Deadline: Currently closed the deadline was last Emailed or postmarked by June 30, 2017

The Student Press Law Center sponsors several awards for those fighting for press freedom. The deadline to submit entries is in June of each year.

MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL AWARDS

The Student Press Law Center, Center for Scholastic Journalism at Kent State University and the National Scholastic Press Association jointly sponsor the Courage in Student Journalism Awards.

The two awards recognize a middle or high school journalist and a media adviser or school administrator who have stood in support of the First Amendment. The student journalist and adviser or school administrator need not be from the same school.

The first award is presented to a student journalist who has shown determination, despite difficulty or resistance, in lawfully exercising his or her First Amendment press rights.

A second award is presented to a student media adviser or school administrator who has demonstrated support, under difficult circumstances, for the First Amendment press rights of his or her school's student media.

To enter: To nominate yourself or someone else, submit a written description (not to exceed 600 words) on how the nominee's circumstances meet the entry criteria, along with any relevant supporting materials or press clips. Each entry should also include the address, phone number and e-mail address of the nominee. It is sometimes necessary to contact a nominee during the summer, so include summer contact information if it is different.

Presentation of awards: Awards are presented during a ceremony at the Journalism Education Association/National Scholastic Press Association fall convention.

Submit entry materials to: Frank LoMonte at director@splc.org

COLLEGE AWARD

Along with the Associated Collegiate Press, the SPLC co-sponsors the College Press Freedom Award to recognize the college student or student news medium that has demonstrated outstanding support for college press freedom. The College Press Freedom Award is presented at the Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisers national fall convention. The College Press Freedom Award winners receive a plaque recognizing their achievements and a cash prize.

To enter: To nominate yourself or someone else, submit a written description (not to exceed 600 words) of how their situation meets the entry criteria described above, along with any relevant supporting materials or press clips and letters of support.

Presentation of awards: Winners will be recognized during a ceremony at the Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisers fall convention.
