Scholastic Media, Diversity, and Outreach
Iowa High School Press Association
Nearing 90 years as one of the nation's strongest scholastic media organizations, IHSPA provides SJMC with a direct link to tomorrow's SJMC students. IHSPA encourages the recognition of journalism as a separate and important course of study, particularly as it reflects the ability of the secondary school student to use all media in understanding his/her role as a citizen.
Iowa Summer Journalism Workshops
The University of Iowa Summer Journalism Workshops are among the nation's leading summer scholastic programs, drawing nearly 175 students each summer from all over the United States and Puerto Rico. The workshops bring intensive training to the nation's top high school journalists, providing them with a fun and rigorous curriculum taught in the state-of-the-art Adler Journalism Building. The program introduces high schoolers to the UI and SJMC communities, regularly inspiring them to make the University of Iowa their college choice.
