A coalition of journalists and local media companies is again offering a summer journalism workshop in San Diego for high school juniors and seniors interested in possible careers in journalism – the 28th annual Multicultural Journalism Workshop.
The 10-day workshop exposes students to real-life print or broadcast journalism, in the hopes that they will pursue careers in the news media. Selected students will produce a professional quality newspaper, news blogs, and a 30-minute television newscast.
The workshop will be held at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, June 20 to June 30, and will use the facilities of the campus and NBC7/39. The deadline to apply is April 7.
The workshop is open to students who are currently juniors and seniors in high schools in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial counties. They don’t need to have journalism experience, but they do have to be good thinkers and writers, and be open to considering a career in the news media.
The workshop is free for those students selected. Further, the best participants can compete for college scholarships.
Interested students can find the 2010 Workshop Application workshopapplication2010, and on the Web site of CCNMA Latino Journalists of California San Diego chapter, www.ccnmasd.org.
