    Sprinting toward Lee’s Summit’s Dalton Souder, eight members of the boys soccer team concentrate on blocking his shot on goal during the Spartans 2-1 loss to the Tigers in the state semifinals. The team braved below freezing temperatures in Kansas City and wound up claiming third place — the school’s first state soccer trophy — and posting the best record in school history.

These student journalists submitted impressive pieces of work from this school year that were selected as the winners by a highly-qualified judging team. This is a wonderful honor for Tommy and Jerianne and their schools and represents the high quality of their journalism and publications programs.

MJEA is the largest state scholastic journalism organization formed to help protect and enhance scholastic journalism in Missouri. MJEA works to provide outreach and support to advisers and journalism programs across the state. The organization supports free and responsible scholastic journalism by providing resources and educational opportunities, by promoting professionalism, by encouraging and rewarding student excellence and teacher achievement, and by fostering an atmosphere which encompasses diversity yet builds unity.

The MJEA student awards were designed to honor the very best in student writing, photography, design and video storytelling in Missouri by selecting one winner in each of 12 categories. The state winners will receive a special medallion and certificate in the mail soon, and we hope that your schools will be sure to recognize this achievement in some way before the year is out.
