About the Workshop
The Dow Jones News Fund has sponsored the high school workshop held on FAMU’s campus for more than 30 years. Alumni of the workshop have gone on to some wonderful news careers, working for publications such as the Wall Street Journal and the Sun-Sentinel in Florida.
During this workshop, students had an opportunity to learn and grow as emerging storytellers in our multimedia world. We understand bullying is a major issue among teens and that’s why the workshop’s theme was “Tackling Bullying.” Students got a chance to interview experts and share their stories via print, audio, video and social media.
This year, we were proud to have NBC Universal join us as a sponsor for the Summer 2012 workshop.
