CPA Student Awards
Share |

The CPA Student Awards is an effort of the Young Communicators project, which will increase educational opportunities for young professionals and students and encourage networking with CPA professionals. Current members of the Catholic Press Association have volunteered to judge and provide critiques for all entries in the CPA Student Awards. This program is a valuable opportunity for students to connect to professionals in the field and receive feedback on their work.

Winners of the CPA Student Awards program will be announced in mid-April and will receive an Award Certificate shortly thereafter. Winners are also acknowledged at the Catholic Media Conference in June, on the CPA website and published in The Catholic Journalist. We have also set up a winners gallery on the awards website, where you can view the previous year's winners.


Students enrolled full or part time in an accredited university or college may enter the CPA Student Awards. Professors/Advisors may also enter work on behalf of their students.

Entries must be the original work of students published in the school publication or on the publication website. Classroom assignments or work completed as part of a course requirement are eligible as long as they are published in the publication or on the publication's website. Work does not have to come from a Catholic university/college publication, but the work must be in line with the teachings of the Catholic Church.


Each entry costs $18.00.

Awards Packet

The CPA Student Awards packet includes eligibility requirements, category descriptions, and submission instructions. We will release the awards packet for the 2018 program in September.
