Quill & Scroll International Honor Society for High School Journalists


    Quill and Scroll International Honor Society for high school journalists was founded as a non-secret honor society at the University of Iowa on April 10, 1926, by renowned pollster George H. Gallup and a group of high school advisers for the purpose of encouraging and recognizing individual student achievement in journalism and academics.
