Newspaper and Yearbook students went to Columbia University in New York City from March 16-18 for the Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) 92nd Annual Spring Scholastic Convention.

At the convention, students attended journalism sessions and consulted with other student journalists from around the country about their own school newspapers. The members at the convention could choose from the 350 sessions offered at the convention. These sessions were divided into seven categories: yearbook, video/broadcasting, newspaper, online media, law and ethics, advisers and magazine.

“It is a fantastic experience,” Yearbook and English teacher Naomi Ratz said. “Every time I come back, I see students rejuvenated and excited for the future of the publications.”
