It’s time to plan for contests and convention
Exciting changes in OSMA’s state convention show we’ve been listening to you! The April 1 and 2, 2016 convention at Kent State University has additional Day-of Contests, more time slots for Friday sessions, a Swap Shop so you can REALLY share ideas and publications, plus a dynamic keynoter to be announced soon. We also have plenty of other ways to help you do a better job with your newspaper, newsmagazine, yearbook, broadcast or website so start planning now to join us. Meanwhile, gather materials for more than 60 pre-entered individual contests and critiques and the overall newspaper, newsmagazine and website critiques. Be sure those are ready by the Jan. 29, 2016 deadline. Additional information will be on this site by the end of November.
