Here’s another great summer journalism program for high school students! The California Scholastic Press Association will hold its 66th-annual high school journalism workshop on the campus of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, from July 9-21, 2017.
Their tuition isn’t bad, it’s $1,475 and includes 13 days of instruction, all meals, an on-campus dorm room and transportation to all workshop activities. Need-based financial aid is available, and no money is due until acceptance to the workshop. The application deadline is April 15, 2017. Get the application here.
The CSPA Workshop is the longest-running and most successful high school journalism workshop in the country. Our graduates have gone on to work for the Los Angeles Times, the Orange County Register, Forbes, The Associated Press, ESPN, CBS, Fox and other nationally recognized media outlets.
Each summer, 25 students are selected to receive hands-on instruction in the areas of print, broadcast, online and photo journalism, plus classes in ethics, public records and more. They will tour the local newspaper office and television station and enjoy an afternoon at the beach.
