SIPA Awards

Scroggins Awards
Winners are selected from All-Southern publications. The adviser and staff members must be registered for the SIPA Convention and must be present at the awards ceremony Sunday morning. Trophies are presented to the most outstanding broadcast, magazine, newspaper and yearbook entries.

Dr. Kay Phillips Administrator of the Year Award
SIPA's first Principal of the Year Award was presented at the 1988 convention. Recipients are nominated by students or advisers and must nurture the principles of scholastic journalism. The winner should attend the convention.

Elizabeth B. Dickey Distinguished Service Awards
These awards recognize advisers, teachers and friends of scholastic journalism who have contributed extraordinary amounts of time, talent and energy to SIPA. Recipients usually have at least seven years' experience advising a school publication; influence beyond the walls of the school in state, regional and national press associations; award-winning publications; and convention leadership.

Joseph W. Shoquist Freedom of the Press Award
SIPA's Freedom of the Press Award was initiated in 1989 in recognition of an adviser's use of her First Amendment rights on the high school level. The first award was presented to Susan Earley, adviser of the Powder Horn Press at Pinellas Park High School in Largo, Fla. The award, named in honor of a former dean of the School of Journalism, will be given periodically when someone makes a strong stand for scholastic journalism.

Outstanding Service Award
SIPA's Outstanding Service Award was awarded for the first time in 2010 as the New Friend of Scholastic Media Award. The first award was presented to Ruth McCune Hartness of Henderson, N.C, a Board of Education member who learned that students in two of Vance County's schools had experienced prior review, prior restraint and censorship and worked to ensure students' freedom of the press. This award went to an individual who is not in the classroom but who has significantly supported scholastic journalism.
