Journalism students travel to national convention

Students attending the convention wait for their next session to start.

From Nov. 11 to Nov. 15, students attended the JEA/NSPA (Journalism Education Association/National Scholastic Press Association) convention held in Orlando, FL at the Dolphin Hotel.

Over 6,000 students from all over the country attended a variety of sessions about categories such as design and theme. These sessions were aimed to help students develop different skills involving journalism.

“I learned that not all yearbook advisers have the same guidelines when it came to design. That really surprised me because I didn’t think the judges were so lenient,” senior Olivia Nash said.

Convention leaders used the Guidebook app to help attendees keep track of their sessions, provide maps of the convention hotel and view any unplanned cancellations. The planners also ran shuttle buses from the hotels participants stayed at to the Dolphin Hotel.

Students and advisers were also able to travel off-site to some of Orlando’s most popular locations such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios.

“Besides the conventions, I went to Disney. Magic Kingdom was the best because it was the original Disney and I got to ride a lot of rides,” Nash said.
