For national Journalist of the Year submissions, all entries continue to be digital. In an effort to help make this a smooth transition, an online toolbox page was created. Advisers should give the URL to eligible candidates. Part of the process is to see what candidates will do to market themselves. This should be the student’s project; however, advisers may guide them however much or as little as they see fit.

The judging rubric also has changed to align this contest with the 11 key areas in the Curriculum Initiative. Eligible contestants should be encouraged to review all guidelines. The toolbox site addresses portfolio-building requirements for eligible contestants.
