The Indiana High School Press Association is proud to announce the winners of the 2021 Hoosier Star Award.

IHSPA provides this opportunity for annual critique as a way for staffs to gain detailed feedback about their publication. Because our judges are able to provide specific comments on a number of important topics, student media staffs can use this evaluation as a way to measure progress, discuss strengths and weaknesses and set goals for improvement. Staffs are encouraged to use this in planning and production.

All student media outlets achieving a “superior” or “excellent” ranking based on these guidebooks are considered finalists in the newspaper, website and yearbook competitions. Winners of the Hoosier Star Award are selected in a second round of judging.
