From communications and culture to politics and pride … 

…you’ll be surrounded with possibilities. In Washington, D.C., it’s hard to separate learning from fun. Whether you stroll the Mall, tour the White House, stop in to visit your senator or hit a different museum every day, history and heritage surround you.

Having a national journalism convention in the hotbed of news and newsmakers provides delegates with unparalleled opportunities. JEA and NSPA invite student media staffs to Washington, D.C. for the JEA/NSPA Fall National High School Journalism Convention, Nov. 6-9, 2014. It’s the largest fall gathering of student journalists in America, and we have plans for great speakers, fabulous tours and more only-in-D.C. possibilities than you can imagine.

There’s no better place to learn about journalism than in the nation’s capital, where many top reporters practice their craft and where democracy, politics and media converge. Whether you work on a newspaper, yearbook, magazine, broadcast or online staff, you’ll be informed and inspired by the convention’s programs.

Washington, D.C., offers visitors a rich diversity of museums, galleries, gardens, restaurants, monuments and other interesting diversions. It’s a vibrant city with an international population of immigrants, embassies and think tanks. JEA and NSPA invite you to the nation’s capital for storytelling experiences and memories galore.

Use the information here to get prepared, and look for registration materials as school starts in 2014. Don’t miss this monumental opportunity to discover what WE THE MEDIA are all about.
