The Keystone Student Press Awards are awarded every year based on submissions.
“The Keystone Press Awards reinforce excellence by individuals in the news media profession, by recognizing journalism that consistently provides relevance, integrity and initiative in serving readers, and faithfully fulfills its First Amendment rights/responsibilities,” according to its website.
The awards are distributed by the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, which supports the newspaper industry and offers practical and money-saving solutions, according to its website.
