More than 500 students attended the convention, representing two- and four-year colleges, university newspapers, literary magazines, radio, television, yearbook and other student media. The event features on-site contests, workshops conducted by professional media personnel and a luncheon to induct the newest members of the TIPA Hall of Fame.
