Attention high school journalists

The San Francisco Peninsula Press Club is now accepting entries for its annual High School Journalism Contest. Click here to download an entry form which also contains the contest rules. The deadline for entries is March 31. Awards will be presented at a reception in the spring.

Categories include news story, feature story, editorial, column, sports story, layout and design, news photo, feature photo, sports photo, Web site design and Web site content.

Last year, 132 students from 12 publications at nine high schools submitted 248 entries in 12 categories. Here's a link to a list of last year's winners.

In addition to the contest, the Press Club also hosts an annual boot camp for student journalists in the fall. The camp is an opportunity for students to learn from professionals and receive critiques of their work.

Anyone with questions about the contest is welcome to contact the Press Club's Micki Carter via e-mail.
