Happy Monday, dear readers!
Over the last week and a half or so the Oregon State Media Department has been hosting 18 high school students in conjunction with the Oregonian Newspaper for the Minority Journalism Camp.
From the Oregonian Teen Blog:
The Oregonian and Oregon State University have been conducting the Minority Journalism Camp on the college campus this week. The camp involves weeklong instruction as well as an opportunity to publish as working journalists.
The 18 students this year will create the usual newspaper, but this year they also went digital, creating this blog including posts, video and photos to chronicle their experiences.
I have been keeping up to date with the happenings at the camp through the Journalism Camp 2008 Blog. If you haven’t had a chance to, read through it. There are some touching, humorous and personal stories that the students and counselors have posted; also, wonderful multimedia stories about the Corvallis and OSU Community. My personal favorite is the coverage of the Corvallis music scene by Kerina Blanchard and Annika Wolters.
Great work, team! I hope to be reading you all very soon!! If we here at the blog can get a PDF copy of the PRIDE (the newspaper the students produced) we will be happy to post it here.
