We will also have a special category for COVID-19 reporting this year.
While the entries must be from the 2021-22 academic year, a technical error on the website makes it so that you MUST enter the year 2021 on the contest site. (Judges will verify that the work was published/broadcast during the 2021-22 academic year).
The work must have been published online or in print, or broadcast or streamed.
Contest winners will be announced on our Facebook page and on our website in June. Certificates will be mailed out to all winners through their school.
