Program and Publication Evaluations
Experienced scholastic judges evaluate SIPA magazines, newspapers, yearbooks and broadcast programs. They provide valuable feedback to help staffs improve as well as award excellence according to established scholastic journalism standards.
Staffs receive a rating and certificate from the evaluation. Since SIPA has gone digital with evaluation guides, staffs receive their evaluation via email and can project the comments and critique in the classroom or publication room.
