Jan. 7, 2022: COVID-19 a localizing contest deadline

When you show how issues that affect people in your state, your country or around the world affect people in your own school community, that’s localizing. Again this fall, a special focus of the contest will be on how COVID-19 has had an impact on members of school communities that scholastic journalists cover. In addition to COVID-19 coverage, localized reporting on other newsworthy issues is also welcome.

Submissions can be artwork, blogs, charts, columns, diagrams, documentaries, editorials, essays, fiction, news or feature stories, podcasts, single photos or photo illustrations, photo essays, poetry, PSAs, special pages, special sections, slide shows or spreads.
