For those who aren’t involved, journalism is a division of courses in the same way that signs are present in a public place; many don’t notice the information until they need it. For students that are in media classes, the constant drive to find more stories and photo opportunities fuels them throughout the day. At J-Day, the state competition for journalism, kids from all over Colorado with this mindset come together to learn about Newspaper, Yearbook, photojournalism, and broadcast journalism from professionals in their respective category before being presented with awards for their mediums.

   Colorado State University hosts J-Day annually, and Conifer has been attending steadily since 2011. On one day every October, CSU’s campus is flooded with high school students that are passionate about journalism and reporting.

   “I think it’s really good for students to be able to expand on questions in a bigger environment,” sophomore Trinity Foreman, Newspaper and Yearbook staffer, said. “When you’re there you can go talk to someone about something that your advisor might not know or is hard to do research on.”

   CHS Student Media won a multitude of awards in every medium, from both this school year and last school year:

  • Canis Lupus, Award of Commendation, 2016-17
  • CHStoday.net, Honorable Mention, Best of Show in 3A/4A online news
  • CHStoday.net, Award of Merit, 2016-2017
  • The Lobo Legend, Award of Merit, 2016-17
  • The Lobo Legend, Honorable Mention, Best of Show in 3A/4A print news
  • Lobotrax, Award of Merit in Video Media

   Upon returning to J-Day for the 2017-18 competition, CHS Student Media plans to accomplish even more.
