Walsworth to sponsor 50 scholarships at Spring JEA/NSPA Convention in San Francisco this month

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Last month, Walsworth announced that it will once again be sponsoring scholarships at the upcoming JEA/NSPA Convention, continuing a program from last fall.

Walsworth will be paying the registration fees for 50 scholarship winners to attend the JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention in San Francisco, April 25-28. The 50 winners were chosen by the convention’s local organizing committee after students provided a written essay explaining why they wanted to attend.

In addition to having their registration fees paid, the 50 students will receive a reception and T-shirts at the convention. The group will also be recognized at the convention’s opening night keynote address on April 25.

Over the next few weeks here in the Yearbooks Blog, we’ll be providing coverage of this year’s 50 Scholars, getting to know some of the students a little bit better, then documenting their convention experience in San Francisco. Stay tuned!
