The past three National High School Journalists of the Year graduated from the non-profit, digitally focused CSPA Workshop, the longest-running high school journalism workshop in the nation. Recent graduates also have been key members of two Pultizer Prize-winning teams. Many others are in top journalism schools and news organizations, and even those who do not pursue journalism careers emerge as better communicators. The CSPA's all-volunteer, award-winning faculty is full of current and former professional journalists from places such as CNN, Gannett, the Los Angeles Times, the Mercury News in San Jose, NBC and the Orange County Register. Students complete more than 30 deadline assignments and receive instructors' detailed feedback in areas such as covering breaking crime stories and sports to photography and television production. The $1,475 tuition covers room, board and all workshop activities. The CSPA returns for the 67th year to San Luis Obispo, where students live, work and play (a little) on and around the gorgeous Cal Poly campus on California's Central Coast. Admission is limited to 25 high school journalists. Students in their sophomore, junior or senior years from any state or country are encouraged to apply.
