You can apply below. Forward the info and link to other teens you think would be interested!
June 16-June 28
An intense, two-week, residential camp at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. You’ll live in college dorms and work with other Minnesota teens to produce a newspaper and other media, including podcasts and video. This camp is designed for high school students completing ninth through 12th grade this spring who have some journalism experience and want to build their skills. Student stories will be published in the Star Tribune and St. Paul Pioneer Press, as well as in the ThreeSixty Journalism magazine.
July 8-August 1
Meets 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays for four weeks to teach teens completing eighth through 11th grade the basics of journalism, including interviewing, writing in journalistic style and photojournalism.
