Join us Friday, April 6 from noon to 1 p.m. and 2 – 3 p.m. in the FirstEnergy Auditorium for the Swap Shop. This is an opportunity for you to showcase your publication’s best work and learn from your peers from other schools’ portfolio.

Register to participate…as schools will be given assigned locations on tables. Each spot will include two chairs and two electrical outlets.

Bring examples…of your best publication’s work to display on a trifold or laptop, as well as extra copies to trade.

Show work…and be able to tell “the story behind the story” about how you created the work.

Give and receive feedback…on the great work you have all been doing.

Earn recognition for best displays…as prizes will be awarded based on:

  • Creativity and design
  • Ability to choose and highlighting best practices in journalism
  • Ability to tell the story of how the piece was made
  • Knowledge of student presenter(s) about the process and the work

Interested? Please fill out the form here and email to OSMA Board Member Josh Davis at jmd@beachwoodschools.org.

If you were and would like to show off that work too, please send images of last year’s award winners (Excellent or Superior) to OSMA Board Member Josh Davis at jmd@beachwoodschools.org. Be sure to include the school, title, byline and award received.
