Student Journalist Resources
The Missouri School of Journalism offers students tours of the school and other resources to consider.
Journalism Education Association JEA “supports free and responsible scholastic journalism by providing resources and educational opportunities, by promoting professionalism, by encouraging and rewarding student excellence and teacher achievement, and by fostering an atmosphere which encompasses diversity yet builds unity,” according to its mission.
JEA Digital Media Advisers have done an amazing job of keeping students up-t0-date with the latest news and trends in digital media.
Regional organizations within the state:
- Journalism Educators of Metro Kansas City provides advisers with adviser-only events throughout the school year, and students with scholarships and other spring contests.
- Journalism StL “One of our main missions is to serve the journalism students in the St. Louis area by hosting a journalism conference every spring, usually at a local university. This conference brings local journalism students together for sessions with local media officials and teachers. We host an annual contest where yearbooks and newspapers are evaluated by out-of-state judges, and we give out thousands of dollars in scholarships for summer journalism workshops.”
Poynter Institute Its website says Poynter “exists to ensure that our communities have access to excellent journalism—the kind of journalism that enables us to participate fully and effectively in our democracy.” This unique resource offers advisers information on “management, ethical decision-making and the power of diversity; we teach editing, writing, reporting and new media skills; we teach those in broadcast, print and the Web; we teach those trying to remake their organizations and those trying to remake their journalistic skills set.”
School Newspapers Online provides website hosting to high schools.
