End of the Year Journalism Award Certificates (Semi-Editable)


“This PowerPoint download contains 40 different end of the year journalism awards certificates that are semi-editable. There are two different kinds of awards: awards for winning a certain category, and awards acknowledging a student’s participation in journalism.

While the backgrounds are set, new graphics and text boxes can be added wherever you would like. For the awards I make for my journalism students, I add a text box for their name and then create a space for the principal’s and advisor’s signatures. I also placed our school’s initials inside of the ribbon. The options are endless!
