For national Journalist of the Year submissions, all entries must be digital. There are resources available here to help candidates get moving on the process. Advisers should give this URL address to eligible candidates. Part of the process is to see what candidates will do to market themselves. This should be the student’s project; however, advisers may guide them however much or as little as they see fit.
The judging rubric aligns with the 11 key areas in the Curriculum Initiative. Eligible contestants should be encouraged to review all guidelines. Candidates are required to organize their work examples in their digital portfolio by these 11 areas.

If there is an area of this site that is lacking, please send an email at pollardr@friscoisd.org so we can enhance our content to be more user friendly.
