Upper School Digital Mass Media NSPA 2023

More than 4,700 journalism students from across the United States and abroad gathered in Boston earlier this month to participate in instructional sessions and on-site contests as part of the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) Fall Convention. Our Upper School Digital Mass Media students competed against 1,453 participants from 141 schools in contests involving writing, multimedia production, photography, and design, once again proving to be amongst the best of the best.
