What is FSPA?

It all started back in 1946 and our District (Seven) was started by Steven Jay Thor in 1983. It was set up to represent all students in public and private schools in Broward, Martin and Palm Beach counties, who were enrolled in journalism courses, including: Journalism I, Broadcasting, Literary Magazine, Newspaper, Yearbook, Web Design and Graphics.

Why should schools/publications attend?

  • Approximately 1,000 middle and high school students attend
  • Students can meet other journalism students form schools in our area
  • Just like math has an honorary societies (like Mu Alpha Theta), and National Honor Society holds annual conferences, our students join the Florida Scholastic Press Association (FSPA)
