The University Interscholastic League (UIL) sponsors several journalism contests: news writing, headline writing, feature writing, and editorial writing. To prepare for district competition, students attend invitational meets a few times a year. Wigwam assistant editors Cindy Ciotta and Thomas Winzeler, and staff writers Gwen Morovitz, Mack LeBlanc, and Ben Wiche recently attended an invitational meet at Mansfield High School.

LeBlanc competed in feature and editorial writing. “It was a fun and interesting experience and it made me realize how I need to write to sound more professional,” she said. LeBlanc plans on competing again, but wishes students had laptops to use. 

Wiche competed in headline writing and enjoyed the laid back day. He said the best part was hanging out with friends. Wiche plans on competing again in January and recommends UIL Journalism competitions to others.

In UIL events, the prompts given to the students come from a mythical city, Leaguetown. Competitors use the information as actual journalists would use it to write stories.

You do not have to be enrolled in journalism classes to compete in UIL journalism events. Please contact adviser Cyndi Lemke in room 1106 if you are interested in competing.
