Congratulations to the Jeffersonville High School Hyphen newspaper staff for qualifying as a finalist in the IHSPA (Indiana High School Press Association) Hoosier Star competition. All newspapers evaluated as “Excellent” or “Superior” publications qualify as finalists and are judged once again. The final evaluation will determine the IHSPA Hoosier Star winners.
The Indiana High School Press Association was founded in 1922 by two Franklin College students who wanted to help high school students produce high school publications. The organization continues to provide resources for high school publication advisers and students in addition to signature events including a convention at Franklin College each October and a First Amendment Symposium at the Indiana Statehouse each March.
