Do you have an awesome advisor?

We want to know about it!

The Adviser of the Year Program is designed to honor outstanding advisers and their exemplary work from the previous year, as well as throughout their careers. At the Fall State Journalism Convention WHSPPA honors an Adviser of the Year.

Advisers may be nominated by their publication staffs, their administrators or their peers. Nominations should describe, in specific detail, what the adviser has done and/or accomplished that sets that person apart in the minds of the nominators. The Awards Committee makes final decisions.

Use the WHSSPA Adviser of the Year form to nominate a Wyoming adviser who has gone above and beyond to support student journalists.
