2016 Lone Star Journalism Writing Contest

Deadline is Nov. 17 for the 2016 Lone Star Journalism Writing Contest co-sponsored by the Texas Press Association and the Interscholastic League Press Conference. Through the annual contest, participating students write general interest features for publication in the student's hometown newspaper. 

Cash prizes are awarded to the winners of the contest. Since UIL Academics does not have an amateur rule, students may participate in this contest as well as participate in UIL journalism (or any academic contest).
