These conventions also mean lots of well-deserved recognition for people — and programs. In addition to Write-offs, Best of Show, individual competitions and many of the non-yearbook Pacemaker awards, there will be adviser and administrator awards presented by JEA, NSPA and the Dow Jones News Fund. Look for lots of familiar faces at the Saturday Awards luncheon sponsored by Herff Jones.
It’s sure to be a fun-filled few days for everyone attending. Be sure to check out plenty of awesome sessions taught by HJ gurus, come say hi and connect with friends at our trade show booth, explore all that Seattle has to offer, mingle with other staffs and I know I don’t have to tell you to have fun in the process. That part will come naturally.
