FPS ASPA Awards 2020
FPS ASPA Awards 2020

Monday, May 04, 2020

The Arkansas Scholastic Press Association announced the winners in their annual contests. The awards were announced via YouTube by President Karla Sprague, Har-Ber High School; and President-Elect Andrew Young, Woodland Junior High School. Seven programs from Fayetteville Public Schools, the most for any district in the state, won awards. Every program from FPS won Superior in General Excellence and four of them (FHS Film, Connotations, The Amethyst, and The Round-Up) were named All-Arkansas, the highest award in the state. Special thanks to Lesley Allen of Fayetteville High School for recording and creating all of the ASPA award videos.

The Arkansas High School Press Association (AHSPA) was founded in 1929 by the late W.J. Lemke of the University of Arkansas. Its purpose was to improve school publications in Arkansas, to increase their prestige, to promote the field of journalism and to recognize outstanding achievement. The Arkansas High School Press Association officially changed its name to the Arkansas Scholastic Press Association (ASPA) in 1998. The present ASPA board consists of five Arkansas Journalism Advisers Association officers, five officer-school advisers, four regional directors, one adviser from each media area and the executive director.
