The Journalism Education Association is the only independent national scholastic journalism organization for teachers and advisers. Led by Executive Director Kelly Glasscock, the headquarters office is located at K-State.
JEA's biannual conferences frequently draw more than 6,000 high school journalists from around the U.S.
The Journalism Education Association has approved a five-year contract with Kansas State University to begin July 1, 2019. The board of directors unanimously approved the agreement for JEA to continue its partnership with K-State and the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications as its headquarters host. The vote and contract signing took place April 25, 2019 in Anaheim at a board meeting before the JEA/NSPA National High School Journalism Convention.
