All MS Honorees
MSPA is proud to announce its 2022 class of All-Mississippi Honorees. Fourteen students from across the state compiled online portfolios of their finest works from a variety of journalistic areas and submitted them for statewide evaluation. From those submissions, a multi-state team of judges selected 9 students as being a cut above the rest, representing the absolute finest examples of high school journalists currently enrolled in Mississippi high schools. The cohort is headlined by the Mississippi High School Journalist of the Year and the Orley Hood sports journalist of the year.
