November 27, 2018


JONESBORO — High school students from across Arkansas will test their communication skills and talents in the 79th Communication Day, Saturday, March 4, 2017, at Arkansas State University.

Departments of Media and Communication in the College of Liberal Arts and Communication are organizing the event, which will be held in the Education and Communication Building, 330 University Loop Circle.

The 79th Communication Day will feature more than 20 competitions in broadcast and print journalism, public relations, advertising, social media, narrative filmmaking, photojournalism, sports, debate, extemporaneous speaking and more.  New competition includes social media, round-table debates and original oratory. 

Students from any high school in Arkansas can compete free of charge for first, second, third and honorable mention prizes. The school accumulating the highest number of points for the day will receive the sweepstakes plaque. All prizes will be presented at 2:30 p.m. the day of the competition.
