Middle School/Junior High Yearbook Awards

The JEA National Junior High/Middle School awards are BACK!

Middle School Yearbook AwardsYearbook contests aren’t just for those giant 400-page yearbooks you see on Pinterest. Junior high and middle school yearbooks of all sizes are eligible to enter JEA’s national media contest.

The media contest takes place this spring (submissions can be uploaded between March 30 and April 20, 2016) and the results will be announced before the end of the school year.


Five reasons why you should enter your student’s work in this year’s contest:

  1. All submissions are handled online so there are no mailing fees or even a need to make a special trip to the post office.
  2. Timely turn around – the competition is for work DURING the year that you have the students. Awards are announced (and mailed to you!) before the end of the school year.
  3. There are four photography contests; three yearbook contests; five newspaper contests; and two broadcast contests.
  4. Contest entries are only $8 each and you can enter each category as many times as you like!
  5. Yearbook awards reward hard work and personal achievement.

Rules, contest instructions and entry procedures are posted here.
