TOP (Team on-site production) competitions took place during a three-hour period on Saturday, March 4, at the 2017 convention. All teams had to produce their packages during the three-hour time period based on a prompt and from materials gathered at the SIPA convention. Click on the links to view the full packages each team produced.

Broadcast

Broadcast teams were asked to create a feature package based on the following prompt:

“Take a national or international issue and localize it for a high school audience. How does that issue affect students, and what are they doing about the issue at school or in the community? Examples include immigration, civic engagement, healthcare, First Amendment freedoms, fake news, education (voucher v. public), diversity and representation, etc. You can focus on how student journalists are covering this issue or how students are tackling this issue as individuals/a group.”

Literary Magazine

Literary magazine teams were asked to write, edit, create and draw inspiration to craft artistic interpretations and content for a magazine spread from the following prompt:

“John Donne wrote, ‘No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.’ Drawing from the concepts of communities, change and connections, create a magazine spread that tells a story from your surroundings, whether that is the USC campus, Columbia, SodaCity Market or SIPA. Your spread should include both written (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, monologue) and visual (art, photography, mixed media) elements.”

“Take a national or international issue and localize it for a high school audience. How does that issue affect students, and what are they doing about the issue at school or in the community? Examples include immigration, civic engagement, healthcare, First Amendment freedoms, fake news, education (voucher v. public), diversity and representation, etc. You can focus on how student journalists are covering this issue or how students are tackling this issue as individuals/a group.”

Wide/medium/close up, C. A variety of subjects (all related to the story), D. A variety of composition rules.”
