What are some summer journalism programs for high school students?

I'm really passionate about journalism and I want to explore my options for next summer. Can anyone recommend any summer programs or workshops specifically for high school students interested in journalism? Thanks in advance!

There are quite a few summer journalism programs that cater to high school students like yourself. Some of the most well-regarded programs include:

1. Medill-Northwestern Journalism Institute - Held at Northwestern University, this program for rising seniors spans five weeks and gives you an opportunity to work on reporting, storytelling, and understanding different types of journalism. You'll also have a chance to engage with accomplished journalists and build your portfolio.

2. The School of The New York Times - Offering both residential and online summer programs, The School of The New York Times gives you access to the world of journalism through hands-on experience and guidance from experts in the industry. Their courses cover various topics such as news reporting, photojournalism, and broadcast journalism.

3. Princeton University Summer Journalism Program - This is a 10-day, all-expenses-paid journalism and college preparatory program for high-achieving, low-income high school juniors. You'll attend lectures, workshops, and site visits to gain experience in reporting and writing, while also receiving guidance on the college application process.

4. Columbia University's Summer Journalism Program - This three-week program invites students to explore different aspects of journalism, including data and investigative reporting, multimedia storytelling, and podcasting. You'll learn from experienced journalists and work on projects to expand your skillset.

If none of these options seems quite right for you, you can find a more extensive list of summer journalism programs on CollegeVine's blog: https://blog.collegevine.com/high-school-journalism-summer-programs. Some of these programs can also be completed virtually, which could be an advantage for you if travel is not feasible.

Remember that these programs can be quite competitive, so take the time to research each one in detail, to ensure your application aligns with what the program is looking for. Additionally, if you're interested in journalism, consider getting involved with your school newspaper or pursuing an internship at a local news outlet to further enrich your experience throughout the year, not just during the summer.

Good luck with finding a program that's right for you!
