Welcome! Region 12 is the Southern region of SPJ and includes the following states:
Each year we host a regional conference and provide training for professional and student members of the region. We partnered with National to host our regional conference in 2016 as part of the JournCamp in New Orleans.
Our 2017 regional conference will take place 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.
