Attention, high school journalism advisers. Please save Friday afternoon, Oct. 26, for the San Francisco Peninsula Press Club’s High School Journalism Boot Camp at the College of San Mateo. It will take place from 12:50 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Topics include online media, transition to college journalism, photoshopping, sports reporting, interview techniques and story ideas students can pursue on their own campus.
Press Club members will also offer critiques of student publications.
Like last year, the Boot Camp take over the CSM Theatre and surrounding classrooms for presentations by professional journalists.
The Press Club is tying the Boot Camp to participation in the spring High School Journalism Contest. Every school that participates in the Boot Camp will be eligible to enter the contest; those schools that do not participate in the Boot Camp will not be eligible for the contest.
More information will be available later this week. We look forward to hearing that you will be sending students on Oct. 26.
