The Junior State of America (JSA) today released the Fall 2013 Edition of The Junior Statement, its quarterly news publication. The student-written and student-edited online news magazine covered a variety of topics. From cyber-bullying to stop-and-frisk, to reflections on the experience of JSA's summer program at Georgetown, the students' varying perspectives were on full display in the latest issue.
"The Junior Statement is not only an outlet for Junior Statesmen to share their views on pressing issues, but is also a way of informing Junior Statesmen of important JSA events occurring around the country," said Junior Statement editor Lilia Abecassis. "With a nearly 40 person staff and monthly issues, The Junior Statement is sure to see its best year yet and I am honored to edit such a publication."
For JSA’s student writers and editors, its publication is a major point of pride. Publication of the Junior Statement began in 1935 at the Montezuma School for Boys where the Junior State of America was founded.
