Payment of Fees for State Convention
Monday, November 5, 2018


At the fall meeting, members voted to have all contest entries (yearbook, newspaper, broadcast, literary magazine, photography) sent directly to the judges and that all entries should have a September 27th deadline. In the past these entries were sent to Executive Director Dawn Knudsvig. I have included the minutes to that meeting on this CD.


1.   All entry materials should be mailed directly to the judges between the dates of August 27 and September 27.  They should also be shipped “priority mail.” This will provide you with a tracking number so you can be sure your entry reaches the judge.  Advisers will be responsible to see that the judge receives the entry. Do not send it “book rate” because it mail sits in the post office back room for days. No late entries (postmarked after Sept. 6) will be accepted. The two week window for submission was set by the Board. The reasoning behind this decision was to prevent entries from trickling in to judges all summer as this might result in entries being lost or misplaced.


2.   Advisers need to fill out all appropriate Google Forms for entries and fees. Please consult our CONVENTION CHECKLIST to make sure you have completed all necessary tasks. 


These basic forms must be filled out for registration to participate in the WHSSPA Convention:

  •  2017 WHSSPA Convention Entry  
  •  WHSSPA Convention Entry Fees

Please make sure to fill out Google Forms for all contests that you are submitting materials to, as well as to submit appropriate materials by mail to the correct judges by the deadline. 

There are entry forms for the following contests: 

  • Yearbook (Yearbook Individual Entries)
  • Newspaper (includes Newspaper Individual Entries)
  • Online Newspaper (includes Online Newspaper Individual Entries)
  • Photography Entries
  • Broadcast Video Entries
  • Literary Magazine Entries

If you have any questions, please direct them to Dawn Knudsvig at:

Treasurer Greg Roher will compile the fees forms sent in by advisers and prepare one invoice for each school. Schools should bring a purchase order to the convention to pay the invoice.
