Eiman Mir

Brookfield East Senior, Eiman Mir, has been selected as the 2024 Wisconsin Journalist of the Year by the Wisconsin Journalism Education Association! She was selected amongst her peers across the state for her high-quality publication leadership, dedication to keeping students informed, and her outreach to community and commitment to diversity.

“Judges were particularly impressed with the way that Eiman took the reins of East’s newspaper, creating lesson materials, implementing a summer writing workshop and even organizing a recruitment trip to a local middle school to get 8th graders excited about journalism,” said Matthew Smith, President of the Wisconsin Journalism Education Association. “Eiman’s clear storytelling and ability to dig into a topic make her efforts informative and engaging, and her entire school journalism program should be very proud!”

As the winner of this prestigious award, Mir will receive a $1,000 scholarship and will advance to compete in the National Journalist of the Year competition in April. Congratulations, Eiman!
