AOE deadline is Oct. 31; please upload entries now

October 12, 2017
A change of the Kansas Press Association's annual convention to February in 2018 requires a number of changes.

The most important change for right now is that the deadlines for entries in the 2018 Awards of Excellence contest have been moved to .

Instead of a full calendar year as in the past, this year's contest will include just the first 10 months of 2017 so that we can get the entries judged in time for presentation at the convention.

The deadline for entries for the upcoming contest is Oct. 31, 2017.

The 2018 theme will be, as the logo above says, "Real News Is Still Our Business."

We are making this move to February so we can tie in the annual Day at the Statehouse and the annual KPA convention together at a time so members can meet directly with their legislators in Topeka at a critical point in the session.
