NABJ High School Workshop
2015 Program: August 2 - 6 in Minneapolis, MN
The NABJ High School Journalism Workshop (JSHOP) is a five-day workshop for local high school students in the host city of NABJ’s Annual Convention and Career Fair.
The JSHOP's goal is to provide an enlightening, informative, hands-on, and challenging introduction of the journalism profession to a multicultural mix of high school students. The workshop provides interactive learning opportunities through lectures, presentations, hands-on training and field trips. The students learn journalism fundamentals for newsgathering, writing, photography, video production, radio, graphic design, editing, and social media. Professional journalists, educators, and journalism college students provide mentorship and supervision.
By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will leave with a portfolio of professionally-developed media products including articles, photographs, and video clips. Also, the students will have a greater sense of what the journalism profession entails and a strong foundation with which to possibly pursue journalism at their high schools, in college, and as a career.
