Application for NASJA Student Membership

If you write, blog, broadcast, photograph, video, tweet or Insta to cover a winter sport or leisure pastime that occurs on snow, you’ll find a home at NASJA.

The NASJA Board has recently approved a new Student category for NASJA membership: the Student member.

This includes coverage of competitive or non-competitive alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, dog sledding, ski jumping, ski orienteering, snowboarding, snowshoeing, uphilling, fat biking, even snow dancing.

We service the needs of our readers, viewers and online users with news and information they can use to decide how to spend those precious few leisure hours in the white winter world.

Student applicants must be enrolled full-time in a college or university, apply using a school .edu email, and must qualify by submitting to the Credentials Committee their snowsports coverage. Dues are $24 a year, and is good up to age 26, assuming you continue to cover snowsports through your time at school.
