The Hawkeye/TEMPO/HBN traveled to Cleveland High School on Saturday, 3/16/19,  for the WJEA State Convention. It was a wonderful day of workshops, sessions, networking, and contests. The keynote speaker was John Tinker of the Tinker v. Des Moines Supreme Court Ruling affirming student rights.

Here are the results from Hawkeye/TEMPO:

Prom will be the Washington state entry into the JEA National Journalist of the Year to be announced in April. This is the fourth time in program history that a member of the Hawkeye has been named the journalist of the year. Previous winners were Adam Jude, Nick Fiorillo, and Stephi Smith.
