Enter the Professional Contest Enter the High School Contest

The NFPW At-Large professional contest is open to both members and non-members. The contest is open to those living in a state where an affiliate contest is not offered. Entry fees are discounted for members. If an entry wins first place in the at-large competition, the entrant must join NFPW (and your affiliate if applicable) by March 15, 2022, to be eligible for the entry to advance to the national competition.

Students participating in the at-large high school contest do not need to join the National Federation of Press Women. Any student can enter the contest if the state where the student lives does not offer a contest. The first place winners in all 23 high school contest categories will advance to the national competition. First place winning entries in the national contest will win $100.

As you begin submitting entries, please carefully review the category requirements to make sure the entry is complete before submitting.
