    The Scholastic Journalism Division hosted the Capitol Teach-In at the AEJMC Convention in Washington, D.C. The division invited high school journalism teachers from the DC area to participate in a one-day workshop to help them improve their journalism skills and media advising strategies. The Teach-In speakers included:
    * Mary Beth Tinker of the Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District (1969) Supreme Court case
    * Frank LeMonte, executive director of the Student Press Law Center
    * Ellen Austin, the 2012 Dow Jones High School Journalism Teacher of the Year
