Our state conference, known as J-Day, has been an annual fall celebration on the CSU campus since 2002. The Sept. 27 event drew 1,700 to Fort Collins, breaking previous attendance marks by 200.

Somehow everyone managed to cram into the Grand Ballroom and hear keynoter Mary Beth Tinker, one of the namesakes of the Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District Supreme Court case of 1969.

Jessica Hunziker, MJE, media adviser at Castle View High School, was honored as the 2018 CSMA Adviser of the Year as part of the opening ceremony. Kevin Taulman, principal of Steamboat Springs High School, was named 2018 CSMA Administrator of the Year. Both of our honorees addressed the attendees during the opening ceremonies.

Check out the video to hear from them, as well as from CSU’s Department of Media Communications chair Greg Luft, and CSMA Executive Director Jack Kennedy.

Eques, the yearbook of Ponderosa High School, was inducted into the All-Colorado Hall of Fame, receiving a plaque for their consistently high ratings in our summer critique program.
