About Us

KHSJA was formed in 1997 by the Kentucky Press Association Board of Directors.

For some 15 years prior to 1997, Kentucky high schools had no statewide association for students interested in the communications industry — high school newspapers, yearbooks, Internet, radio and TV.

The Kentucky High School Journalism Association brings together students and advisers from high schools across Kentucky with news media professionals and university personnel.
