Youth Journalism International sponsors the only worldwide teen journalism contest, open to any youth, anywhere, not just YJI students.
YJI’s Excellence in Journalism contest aims to shine a light on the exceptional journalism by young people each year.
Crystal trophies go to the top award winners, including the Student Journalist of the Year and Journalism Educator of the Year. Young journalists compete in many other categories -- news, sports, features, opinion, photography and graphic art.
Since the 2010 launch of the contest, the winners alone have represented 20 countries on five continents. Trophies for top categories have been sent out to students in the United States, Egypt, India, Italy and the Netherlands.
