Winners of JSPA’s fifth annual awards for high school journalists were announced Feb. 2 at Beth Jacob Congregation in Los Angeles.

A total of 14 first- and second-place awards were chosen from among 53 entries in nine categories from six different schools, and the Grand Prize was chosen from among the category winners.

The contest was judged by JSPA Board Secretary Kathleen Neumeyer, national award-winning journalism teacher who advised the Chronicle at Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles for 24 years.

The Grand Prize was chosen from among the category winners, and judged by Ari Goldman, professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism, former New York Times religion writer and best-selling author.  Prof. Goldman was the keynote speaker at this year’s conference.
