MSU offering free summer journalism camp for high schoolers

Print Article

Applications are now being accepted for a free summer journalism camp for high school students on Montana State Universityís campus. The camp will run from Sunday, July 7 to Friday, July 12, and includes lodging and meals on campus.

The deadline for applications is Monday, April 8. Students from any Montana community are invited to apply. Twelve participants will be selected.

The weeklong, residential experience will immerse students in the theory and practice of journalism. Participants will explore relevant issues facing American journalists today and develop skills by covering a variety of news events throughout the Bozeman area. After leaving camp, students will return to their home communities and develop a story that sheds light on a significant aspect of life within their town.

In the application, students will be asked to identify important issues in their communities and recognize how the media covers them. They will also be asked what stories have not been covered and how the community would benefit if the rest of the world knew more about these issues. Students must also submit photographs of important locations in their towns.

For details and a link to the online application, please visit ato.montana.edu/ywpjour.

The camp is hosted by the Yellowstone Writing Project with support from the MacArthur Foundation and the National Writing Project.
