High school students: if you're ready to see what it's like to be a journalist during challenging times, join us for the Urban Journalism Workshop!
During the program, you'll learn how to use digital equipment to cover events, gain interview skills, and create journalism in a variety of media. You'll work in teams that focus on multimedia news gathering using your phones and iPad minis to record and shoot video.
Now in its 36th year, the Urban Journalism Workshop has offered aspiring journalists like you a sense of the real world of news reporting. Check out The Urban Voice to see past examples of student work.
Wisconsin students who are eligible for free or reduced price school meals may also qualify for a DPI Precollege Scholarship.
