"For what it's worth: it's never too late or, in my case, too early to be
whoever you want to be. There's no time limit; stop whenever you
want. You can change or stay the same; there are no rules to this
thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the
best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things
you've never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different
point of view. I hope you live a life you're proud of. If you find that
you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again," -Benjamin Button
Words cannot describe how much I love this. For me and all the other students going on the San Diego trip, I feel it will not only encourage us to be more educated citizens, but also help us meet people with a different point of view and see things we have never seen before. This trip will become a memory we will never forget and be very proud of.
We have 61 days to go! Help fund us become who we want to be; amazing student journalist.
One of my favorite aspects of Journalism is the connection you feel with your surroundings. 99.9% of the time when a teacher brings up an issue from the news in class, I and other journalists usually know exactly what issue they are speaking of. Anyone who takes a journalism course learns how important it is to stay connected with the news and to be an educated citizen. By donating to the San Diego trip, you would be encouraging all journalism students to maintain that connection.
We have 63 days! Anything helps and we would truly be grateful!
Merry Christmas everyone! I know for almost all of the students at EHS fund raising for the San Diego trip, that is all they really want for Christmas is to attend. You can help make that possible by any donation, big or small.
We have 99 days until the San Diego JEA/NSPA journalism convention! This convention truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the journalism students at EHS. Any penny helps us get just one step closer!
Also, we would like to thank Isaiah Ashba for his donation. We truly appreciate it.
Here's a cool tidbit about journalism:
When asked what single class
prepared FDR to be president of
The United States he answered
being the editor of his high
If a journalism course prepared FDR for presidency, then newspaper or yearbook can no doubt advance students 21st century skills and equipped them with real world life skills.
Attending the Journalism convention this spring would further promote educating and equipping students' with the real world skills they will need for any future endeavors
By going on this journalism trip, kids would not only get to explore further into journalism, but would also get to dive into another culture. This video, which was created by students that have gone to these conventions , shows a sneak peek of San Diego.
The Edgewood High School journalism program is raising money for the 2014 JEA/NSPA Journalism Convention in April. The convention offers more than 300 learning sessions in newspaper, yearbook, magazine, broadcast, online, advising, media law , writing, editing and more.
Also, every member of the journalism program will have the opportunity to enter contest and win scholarships at the convention.
Please help sponsor our trip! We would be more than grateful!
