The CSPA invites high school students and faculty advisers to attend and participate in CSPA’s 99th annual Spring Scholastic Convention. This national gathering of student editors and faculty advisers to newspapers, yearbooks, magazines, video productions, and online media will be held at Columbia University from Wednesday, March 15 through Friday, March 17, 2023.
Throughout the Convention, our hourly schedule boasts a variety of special events, including Advisers Luncheons on Thursday and Friday. In addition, the Columbia Scholastic Press Advisers Association (CSPAA) will meet on Friday.
Deadline for early registration is February 24, 2023 at a fee of $169 per person. To qualify for the early registration fee, your registration fees must be paid in full before the early deadline.
COVID REQUIREMENTS AND DOCUMENTATION
As CSPA is owned and operated by Columbia University in the City of New York, we are required to comply with University rules and regulations. Columbia University currently requires all in-person visitors to its campus to have received the primary vaccination series. Please review the current University protocols and requirements for coming to campus by following this link. Also of note: masking indoors is currently optional, but strongly recommended.
To complete the registration process, you must acknowledge the COVID-19 requirements and share them with everyone who will be attending the Convention. Groups should prepare everyone in their group to bring legible photocopies of their vaccination paperwork, in case they are asked to produce it by University staff. (This is probably a good idea for other select locations around New York City.)
