FSPA Student Spotlight
What It Is
FSPA's Student Spotlight is a way for us to feature the great work that our member publications from around the state of Florida are doing each month. It is less formal than one of our contests, and its purpose is to allow staffs to submit anything they feel is worth showing off.
This page will feature monthly work from students of our member publications. While we will have a focus for each month, we will spotlight a variety of quality journalism work from around the state.
