Your head will spin in amazement during the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention in Indianapolis, November 10-13, 2016. Indy is the Circle City, so plan to take advantage of all that our Journalism 360 convention brings.

Just steps from the state capitol, major and minor league athletic venues, museums, stores, restaurants and the beautiful Canal Walk, Indy offers a little something for everyone, in addition to the great sessions, speakers and opportunities the national convention brings.

Attendees can witness our annual Veterans Day parade downtown and check out our monuments throughout the area. Indy is second only to Washington, D.C. when it comes to monuments.

Indianapolis isn’t just a world-class city, but the Amateur Sports Capital of the World, the Racing Capital of the World and the Crossroads of America. We’re big on sports, but even bigger on news. Each day there are more than 40 hours of local television news broadcast in addition to local newspapers and radio stations all housed steps from the convention hotel. Start making plans now to attend the convention that has you covered from every angle — Journalism 360.
