For more than 25 years, our award-winning UJW has provided DC-area high school students with hands-on training in print/online and broadcast journalism. Each year we award modest scholarships to a few of our outstanding college-bound seniors.
Proceeds will go to help this year's scholarship winners: Laurel Hattix, Shante' Hayes, and Katie Stevenson. Your generous support enables us to continue to provide scholarships to these and other deserving students.
Tickets and donations are tax-deductible. Advance tickets available through Eventbrite. Credit cards, cash and checks accepted at the door.
The donation is $30, but please consider giving more to help a student if you can.
See you there!
