Student and class projectsSome schools use student and class projects which involve writing to educate their students. The best results will then be published in the International Youth Journal: It will honor the efforts of your students and make the articles available to youths around the world. A similar procedure can be done with homeworks or other assignments.
Workshops and IYJ school clubsMany outstanding schools provide writing workshops, after-school groups, or school clubs for writing and journalism: Every school and teacher is invited to embed the International Youth Journal into these clubs, to make publishing articles the aim of the group, or to start an IYJ school club. This possibility extends to the youth journalists program of the International Youth Journal: Students have the opportunity to become Official Youth Journalists which is a great career aspect and enables many features. Schools are welcomed to prepare students with workshops or school clubs for being a youth journalist and to conduct journalism projects with the students.

IYJ school awardThe International Youth Journal awards the annual IYJ School Award to an outstanding school with many youth journalists among their students. The prize is (usually) not connected to a money prize but honors the efforts and quality of the teachers of the school. Schools participate by promoting the IYJ youth journalist program and by having registered youth journalists. The same school can receive the IYJ School Award only once.
