DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: APRIL 15, 2013
To all El Paso area high school journalism/media student advisors:
We invite you to nominate your top journalism students for “Journalism in July” at the UTEP campus from July 7-14. Journalism in July recruits 20 students from high schools in the El Paso area to train them in the basics of journalism and how to use digital tools to tell stories on the web. During the 7-day residential workshop, student journalists stay in the UTEP campus dormitories. UTEP faculty and volunteer media professionals teach news reporting and writing as well as video, audio and photography practices. They visit print and broadcast media outlets, and ultimately produce a bilingual, multimedia student web magazine filled with news and enterprise stories and featuring digital photography and video.
