High school students: get away this summer on a journalism camp

The 21st annual Mosaic High School Journalism Workshop is looking for 18 students for an exciting, two-week, newspaper camp taught by professional reporters, editors and photographers.

And it's free!

The students will work in the campus newsroom at San Jose State University. They’ll hit the streets of Silicon Valley to cover issues and trends that matter to them and other teens. They’ll stay overnight in campus dormitories and get a taste of college life. Our instructors will guide them every step of the way, from focusing story and photo ideas to reporting and writing. At the end of the program they'll see their newspaper roll off the presses of the Bay Area News Group.

Please visit our Website for more details, online versions of previous workshop newspapers and a downloadable application for the 2014 program here.

Founded in 1993, the Mosaic has given 380 high school students a close-up, hands-on look at professional journalism. Many of them now work at newspapers, magazines, television and online publications around the country.

Applicants must be current sophomores, juniors or seniors. The 2014 Mosaic will be held from Sunday, June 15 to Friday, June 27. Applications are due (postmarked no later than) April 7.

You can find more information here and the application here.
