The three-day 2012 South East Journalism Conference will feature competitive journalism contests that will test students’ abilities and knowledge in news writing, radio reporting, photojournalism, public relations and more.
Competitions will take place Friday along with an awards banquet announcing winners of contests for previously submitted materials.

At 9:30 a.m. Saturday, in Watkins Auditorium of the Boling University Center, a panel of students from the University of Alabama student newspaper will discuss how they coped with the EF4 tornado that ravaged Tuscaloosa, Ala., April 27, 2011.
