ASB Goes to Washington

ASB will be attending the JEA/NSPA convention in Washington D.C. November 6-9, and we hope to see many of you there.  This is the second straight year ASB has participated in the fall convention for scholastic journalists.

Washington D.C. is the site for the 2014 fall convention of the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association joint convention.  The theme is "We the Media."  Brandon Goodwin and Dave Davis from ASB will be presenters.
