The University of Minnesota (UMN) has approved the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention for 10 contact hours of continuing education (1.0 CEU).Before the convention, you will receive a CEU Attendance Verification Form via email. You must return it (in person or in an email) to NSPA by April 22 to qualify for the CEU.

If that form is completed on time, a certificate will be mailed to you in May. A record of your UMN CE hours will remain on record at the university.

If you have questions about the session evaluation, please email NSPA at

Awarding credit for continuing education activities varies by profession and state. Attending this convention will allow you to receive a UMN continuing education hour. It remains your responsibility to verify with your governing agency if the CE hour will be accepted.
