Welcome! Region 12 is the SPJ region for Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Each year we host a regional conference and provide training for professional and student members of the region.
Our 2017 Spring Conference will take place at the Multicultural Center on the UT campus Saturday, April 1 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
In addition to the regional conference, we also have two award contests. The annual Mark of Excellence awards are for outstanding student journalism. We also partner with Region 3 to host the Green Eyeshade Awards contest.
If you are interested in learning more about Region 12, need information about a chapter, either professional or student, in your area, or just want to share some ideas and chat about SPJ, please contact Region 12 Director Amanda Womac.
