Held in the fall, this popular event brings together ten students from each of the DoDEA Pacific high schools. Presentations and workshops are given by civilian and military journalism professionals. In addition, students are placed into teams comprised of students from around the Pacific and then asked to create newspapers, news broadcasts, and yearbook spreads. Several awards are presented in the areas of yearbook, school newspaper, photography, and broadcast journalism. FAST trips (Find A Story Time) are conducted wherein teams are dispatched thorough out Tokyo (with an adult sponsor) in search of a story. These are incorporated into their productions and a panel is conducted at the end of the week to provide feedback on the newly created products.
