High School Journalism Workshop

Summer 2017

Are you a high school junior or senior looking for hands-on practice with journalism, broadcasting or design? Come to one of the three UI High School Journalism Workshops being offered this summer in Boise, Idaho Falls and Coeur d’Alene.

Each workshop is a one-day event where students can learn more about basic news reporting, the fundamentals of broadcasting and design. Each student will walk away with a news story, a broadcast package or a design to add to their portfolio. The stories, package sand designs will be published online as part of the Summer Argonaut.

To participate, students must be at least 16 years old and have a letter of recommendation from a teacher. They must also fill out the application form and be accepted by the workshop director. Cost for each workshop is $10 per person which pays for materials.

The 2017 High School Journalism Workshop is funded through a generous donation by the Howard and Ursula Dubin Foundation, the Coeur d’Alene Press and UI JAMM alumna Kathy Barnard LaPointe. All workshops will run from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. each day.

Any Idaho high school journalism teacher, or a teacher who wants more information so they may become a high school journalism teacher, is welcome to come to the workshop. In addition to the three tracks, teachers will also be eligible for a special lunch track discussing legal issues which impact the high school journalism classroom, newspaper, broadcasts and other efforts. The cost of the workshop for teachers is $10, which covers materials for both the desired training track and the noon session on law.

Trainers include Gary Lundgren, assistant director of the National Scholastic Press Association; former broadcaster Mark Browning; and local journalists in each city.

For more information about the workshops, contact Dr. Becky Tallent at rtallent@uidaho.edu.
