2010 Student Journalist of the Year
Results are due out any day now. We’re working hard to finish the judging and prepare the announcement.
The number of entries was higher than ever this year, with young people in 18 nations and a dozen U.S. states participating. There are many categories covering news, opinion and sports writing, editorials and art, including illustrations, cartoons and photography.
Lots of great journalism by talented young people the world over will be recognized.
This year, about 20 judges are lending a hand to evaluate the work submitted by young people around the world. Nearly all of the judges are finished, but there is still a little more work to do, so we ask for a little more patience.
We expect to be able to release the winners’ names sometime this week. The results will be announced on this blog and also on our website at youthjournalism.org.
