Canva Challenges Accepted in St. Louis

The JEA/NSPA Fall National HS Journalism Convention in St. Louis was the place to be for learning, networking and recognition with other scholastic journalists, advisers and journalism teachers from across the country. Herff Jones was there with flair for all, great swag, lots of amazing yearbooks, a vendor session full of Canva Wow and private consultations with gurus galore.

This year, we had the best time with our Canva Challenges for students to showcase their design abilities through eDesign + Canva. We may give you a bit of FOMO when you see how much fun we had.

From creating flyers for staff recruitment to constructing social media for sales and promotions, we were amazed by over 80 head-to-head design offs. Only four minutes (and maybe bonus time) was no problem for these pros to design their hearts out for awesome prizes. And, the best part? Some challengers weren’t even designers!

With eDesign + Canva, you’ll be amazed by the powerhouse capabilities to make yearbooking easier than ever. Want to see more of eDesign in action? Check it out.

A big congratulations to our winners!

We can’t wait see you in April at the JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention in San Francisco. Don’t forget to pack your safety vests for next time!
