This fund acts as the safety net for student journalism in the state of Kansas. Thousands of Kansas students and teachers believe in the power of the press, and we are here to make sure their voices are heard. The Kansas Scholastic Press Association preserves free expression in student publications in honor of our long-time executive secretary Jackie Engel. A long-time teacher from McPherson High School, Engel died in 2005. This endowment now covers student and adviser scholarships, including the awards to the Kansas Student Journalists of the Year and the awards to both the Ad Astra and Sunflower Award winners.
