Time to join OSMA again

If you’re an Ohio high school journalist or adviser, it’s time make sure your school pays your annual dues to be a member of the Ohio Scholastic Media Association. For $75 a year, all student media in your school will belong. Never been a member? Here’s what you’ll get:

  • All contests are no extra charge to enter — with more than 50 different individual categories for web, print, broadcast, yearbook and photography, plus overall critiques and ratings for newspapers, newsmagzines, student websites and yearbooks. You’ll get expert feedback on all your submissions.
  • Kick off the year right with learning sessions at fall day-long regional workshops, only $10 per participant — $18 with lunch for advisers. Topics include everything from writing to photography, design to broadcast, print to social media, journalism to public relations to broadcast — with some sessions geared especially for beginners. Region 1 (northeast Ohio) is set to go at Kent State University, Thursday, Oct. 6.  Then Region 5 (central Ohio) will be Tuesday, Oct. 18 at Mt. Vernon Nazarene University. See details on the regional pages. 
  • Then, Friday, April 16 with extra sessions Saturday, April 17, we celebrate student media with another great line-up of hands-on topics, followed by the awards banquet in the Ballroom of Kent State’s Student Center. We’ll enjoy a good meal and hear from an inspirational speaker. Then you will have a chance to receive kudos for what went well and suggestions on how to keep improving based on word you submit in late January. Your publication’s name — and YOURS — can be up on the screen at the awards banquet. (Check out the PowerPoint below for last year’s winners)
  • But remember — you must be a member to get in on any of this! You can join online with a credit card or fill out the pdf form, submit it and receive an invoice.
