High School Journalism Workshop Set for Summer
Juniors and seniors given opportunity to learn the ropes

New Mexico high school students will have the opportunity to learn the basics of journalism from some of the top professionals in the state this summer at the University of New Mexico.

The New Mexico Press Association Foundation and the New Mexico Scholastic Press Association are working together to present the 2018 High School Journalism Workshop on June 10-13 at the University of New Mexico. Participants will spend three days learning from working journalists how to put together a newspaper in both traditional and digital formats. The students will learn basic reporting, photography, page design, copy editing and story editing as well as some basic media law, ethics and the importance of transparency in government.

At the end of the workshop, participants will see the results of their work in the publication of The Freedom Press.

This workshop is perfect for high school newspaper staffers and bloggers as well as yearbook staffers or anyone interested in journalism.

Cost for the workshop is $150 with scholarships available thanks to the member newspapers of the New Mexico Press Association and the Association’s foundation. Included in the price is room and board in UNM’s new dormitory, class materials.

The workshop is available to incoming high school juniors and seniors who are interested in journalism, can attend the whole workshop and are able to stay on campus during the entire workshop.
