The NPA and OnePress boards of directors in February unanimously approved that the 2021 NPA Convention be held virtually and not in-person.
The boards cited continued health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 virus as the sole reason for the change. The convention was scheduled to be held on April 8-10 at the Cornhusker Marriott in Lincoln; this is the second consecutive year for cancellation due to COVID-19.
- SAVE THE DATES! The NPA 2021 (virtual) Convention will be held Thursday & Friday, April 22 & 23.
- The Better Newspaper Contest & Awards video presentation will be held separately, in early June. Date TBA.
- CALL FOR AWARD NOMINATIONS for Outstanding Young Nebraska Journalist, Harpst Leadership Award and Pica Pole Award will be sent out soon.
More details will be announced soon!
