Each year, the Nebraska Press Women organization sponsors a Professional Communications Contest. A collegiate communications contest is a separate division of the professional contest. Award winners in both contests are recognized at the state level with top prizes being first, second and third place Sweepstakes Awards. All NFPW first place winners from Nebraska are eligible to compete in the national contest. For more information, go to the menu above and click on Contests, then Contest Rules.

NPW also holds an annual High School Communications Contest. Competition is held in two divisions, Class A schools and all schools smaller than Class A, with awards presented in each. However, only the top entry in each of the categories advances to national. This is the only existing high school journalism contest that feeds into national competition. For more information on the high school contest, go to the menu above and click on Contests, then High School.
