Today the Mississippi Scholastic Press Association celebrated high school journalism in Mississippi with another successful statewide convention. More than 500 students from schools across the state attended the event, held on the campus of the University of Mississippi.

Attendees were treated to more than 40 different breakout sessions on topics ranging from basic writing and design to virtual reality and the Parkland school shooting. Keynote speaker Jesse J. Holland, a Mississippi native, Associated Press writer and author of the new Black Panther movie’s accompanying novel, delivered an outstanding afternoon address before the day finished with the annual Best of MS awards ceremony, which celebrated the best in student work throughout the year.

Bruin News Now, the school news broadcast at St. Joseph Catholic School, was named the state’s best student newscast, and The Charger at Oxford High School was named Best School Newspaper. A full list of winners can be found linked below.

MSPA was established in 1947 to help enhance and preserve student voices throughout the state, a mission it continues to pursue today.
