Help us bring student journalism to SXSW!
If you liked our recent segment on 8th-grader De’Qonton Davis and his talent for storytelling, help our Student Reporting Labs team make it to South by Southwest (SXSW)! Our proposed panel for SXSWedu focuses on empowering students to tell their own stories through video journalism.
More than half of the high schools in America have a school newspaper or a video production course — but, how can these programs encourage citizenship and improve the media landscape of the future? We’ve developed a curriculum and news platform that enables middle and high school students to produce video reports on important national topics that impact their local communities. In this panel, we’ll share how video journalism can help young people gain confidence in themselves as capable, socially responsible citizens by discovering the power of storytelling.
To help us out, please:
Thanks, thanks, a million thanks.
