2020 JSHOP High NABJ School Workshop

July 8-12, 2020


The NABJ High School Journalism Workshop (JSHOP) is a free, four-day workshop for local high school students in the host city of NABJ’s Annual Convention & Career Fair scheduled for July 8-12, 2020.

Students from across the country may also apply. National student applicants must be able to provide their own transportation to and from the host city, as well as housing and meals outside of JSHOP. Essentially they must act as a local student. A parent or guardian must chaperone the national student who participates in JSHOP.

The JSHOP's goal is to provide an enlightening, informative, hands-on, and challenging introduction to the journalism profession to a multicultural group of high school students. The workshop provides interactive learning opportunities through lectures, presentations, hands-on training and field trips. The students learn multimedia 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 works including articles, photographs, and video clips. Also, the students will have a greater sense of what the journalism profession entails and a strong foundation to help them to pursue journalism at their high schools, in college, and as a career.
