If you have passionate, driven and journalism-loving high school juniors on your staff, pay close attention. These individuals have the chance to apply to be one of only 51 high school juniors chosen to attend the Al Neuharth Free Spirit and Journalism Conference at the Newseum in Washington D.C. June 17-22, 2017.
The 51 chosen rising seniors will receive an all-expense paid trip to Washington D.C where they’ll delve deep into exciting and rewarding learning experiences. Not only that, but each student will receive a $1,000 scholarship to the college of their choice — how exciting!
Being a yerd for three years led me to what I do now — write. Aside from that, the things that make me happiest are: cooking (despite how the end product may turn out), sand, waves and sunshine, all things pineapple and every single moment spent with the ones who mean the most to me.
