High School Students

Budding journalists

The Scripps Howard Foundation believes that the future of journalism rests in the minds and abilities of students still in high school. They are on the cusp of forming their own opinions about the world around them. An introduction to a journalism program can be the spark that ignites the interests of students still exploring their future career opportunities.

With our support, Ohio University offers a workshop for promising high school journalists that teaches the latest in news writing, blogging, social media, video production and photojournalism. Register in March for the July workshop; scholarships are available for minority students.
