Mission

Our mission is to encourage interest in journalism and secondary school publications.

Raise the standards of secondary school publications.

Encourage 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 the mass media
in understanding his/her role as a citizen.

Encourage secondary school publications to accept responsibility as a vital means of
communication with the community about school aims and activities.

Encourage students with journalism aptitudes to continue in the field of journalism.

Support standard requirements of a minor or a minimum of 18 hours in journalism for teachers of journalism.
