SPJ Region 12

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.
