Congratulations to the 2019 Student Keystone Press Award winners!

2019 Winners

The Student Keystone Press Awards contest recognizes high school and college journalism that provides relevance, integrity, and initiative in serving readers. Any student at any public, private or parochial Pennsylvania high school, college or university who has had his or her material published in the school newspaper may enter the contest. Students who have had their work published on a digital news site may enter the contest provided the site meets the criteria as outlined in the contest rules.

Winners will be honored at the America East News Media & Technology Summit on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, in Hershey, Pa.

To register for the awards luncheon, please complete the Awards Luncheon Registration Form (one per student winner attending) and return to the PNA Foundation by March 22, 2019.

All entries and online payments must have been submitted via the online contest system, BetterBNC, by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, January 18, 2019.

Plaques will be provided to all first place winners and certificates to all second place and honorable mention winners in attendance at the awards luncheon. As outlined in the contest rules, award certificates will be mailed to winners not in attendance with the option to purchase plaque(s). To order your plaque(s), complete and return the Student Plaque Order Form.

Helpful Tip

Start saving entries for next year’s contest throughout the year! To avoid the frantic rush during next year’s contest period, we recommend that you save your potential entries in a special file on your computer, or create a MyScrapbooks page through the BetterBNC website. Then when contest time rolls around, you simply search that file for your best work!
