We're here to help you plan your summer

It’s been a long year, but we made it to summer! Like SPLC, many schools are already planning for the next school year. We gathered a few resources that could be helpful for advisers and students:
Our free legal hotline fielded many new questions as the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way publications operate. As we adjust again to a more “normal” school year, we’re prepared to answer your questions and provide support. Keep us in mind!

Accepting applications for the New Voices Student Leaders Institute

Deadline: June 4

Do you know a high school student who wants to see student press freedom signed into law in your state?

Tell them to apply now for the New Voices Student Leaders Institute, a free, four-day program in July for students to develop their leadership and organizing skills, expand their role as leaders within the New Voices movement, and identify a strategy that could be instrumental in their state’s New Voices efforts.

Last chance to apply for high school and college press freedom awards

Deadline: June 1

We’re seeking student journalists to recognize for persisting through tough circumstances to tell a story critically important to their classmates and community.

One high school and one college winner will receive a Student Press Freedom Award from SPLC. Each award comes with a cash prize for the winning student’s news organization. The submission deadline (covering stories published during the 2020-21 academic year) is June 1.

Q: Can we create an online directory of alumni that includes their photos and graduation dates?

You can certainly create a directory that includes the names and graduation dates of former students. No special permission is required. Whether or not you can publish their photos can be more complicated and depends on the source and copyright status of the photo. For example, if your plan is to re-use their official “senior photo,” you’ll need to make sure you have the permission of the photographer.
