The Scholastic Press Association of Chicago (SPAC) supports the mission of high school journalists through workshops, scholarships and professional linkages throughout the year.  We support the mission of the National Scholastic Press Association which works to help students become better reporters, writers, editors, photographers, designers, desktop publishers, and advertising and business staffers. SPAC also is an advocate for journalism advisors who seek resources and networking opportunities.
