UIL Journalism Contests

PowerPoints of Contest Overviews

The documents below provide additional resources for journalism teachers and students.

The UIL sponsors four journalism contests - news writing, feature writing, editorial writing and headline writing. Students compete at the district level, and then the top three places advance to regionals. From regionals, the top three places advance to state competition. The UIL journalism program has seen increased participation in recent years. Many contests winners have gone on to excel as professional journalists.
