State Scholastic Press Association hosting student workshop


The Alabama Scholastic Press Association will host the 2024 Multicultural Journalism Workshop for high school media students. Held on the campus of The University of Alabama from May 31 to June 9, the 10-day journalism intensive workshop gives high school students from multicultural or underrepresented populations the tools and experiences needed to hone their writing, develop new skills in multimedia reporting, design and production and foster relationships with working industry professionals. Students will be immersed in the rich history of the Black Belt Region of Alabama from museum trips, walking tours and restaurant visits.

The program is all-inclusive (minus travel to Tuscaloosa) for accepted students. Students in grades 9-12 are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible for consideration. Recently graduated high school seniors who may be enrolled in college but have not yet begun their first semester are also welcome. Ten total students will be admitted. The application deadline is April 1.
