Awards and Competitions

Start with some good ideas, add some hard work and you could end up in San Francisco or New York City or Phoenix, competing for a national award. CoJMC teams and individuals regularly haul home trophies from advertising and journalism contests. What an incredible way to add interest to your story!

Hearst Awards
