A Call To Students and Native American/Alaskan Native Journalists

The Native American Journalists Association is hosting its annual conference “Storytelling through New Media” in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida July 13-17, 2011.  We invite students to participate in our Project Phoenix workshop (high school) and Native Voice (college) workshop that has students working with Native American journalists in a newsroom to produce a newspaper, audio and video stories.  These projects were often the stepping stone for many of our current Native journalists.

I encourage all students to submit an application, they can be found on our NAJA website.  The deadline is May 1st.

The early bird conference registration is May 1st as well, if you plan on attending the NAJA conference, the tentative schedule is also up, with sessions with: Google, Society of Professional Journalist, Health reporting, The Reynolds School of Business on “Business Reporting”, Investigative Reporting: The Murder of Anna Mae Pictou Aquash by AIM and much more to announce.   Save $100 on registration and get registered by May 1st!
