Each entry must be accompanied by a $5 entry fee. It is recommended that each school should pursue funding for award entries from their high school administration. If that doesn’t work or you need any assistance in paying for entry fees, please contact Jake Sorensen at [email protected] to find out about applying for entry fee grants. A limited number are available.

The online entry portal can also accept credit cards or if desired, we can work with the Utah Press Association to have an invoice sent to your school.
