Join us for the fifth annual Student Press Freedom Day on Feb. 23, 2023, as student journalists across the United States raise awareness of the challenges they face, celebrate their contributions to their schools and communities, and take actions to protect and restore their First Amendment freedoms.
We’re excited to announce the theme for Student Press Freedom Day 2023 is “Bold Journalism & Brave Advocacy.”
Participate in expert-led training workshops, an op-ed coaching program, student-led community forums, and a letter writing party on behalf of New Voices. Or get creative and plan your own Student Press Freedom Day activities! Your involvement is what makes the day truly impactful.
The best way to stay in the loop about all the exciting ways to get involved this year is by signing up for Student Press Freedom Day email updates. You’ll get first access to event registration, talking points, a toolkit, and more!

Take the Self-Censorship Quiz
You can’t fight self-censorship if you can’t recognize it. Unfortunately, many of the students who share their stories of self-censorship with SPLC indicate that they didn’t know they were engaged in self-censorship at the time. Take our quiz to see how well you can spot and resist self-censorsing.
The Student Press Law Center is proud to partner with a strong array of First Amendment, educational, legal and journalistic organizations to bring you Student Press Freedom Day! More information coming soon about 2023 Partners.
