Don’t Miss Your Chance to Get Training and Cover the Industry’s Largest Gathering of Journalists, UNITY ‘08 <http://www.nahj.org/educationalprograms/conventionprojects.shtml>
Work in a “converged” newsroom at the UNITY ’08 Convention and meet hundreds of professional newspaper, radio, TV and online journalists. This experience can be yours if you apply for, and are accepted into, the UNITY ’08 Student Projects, which run from July 20-27 in Chicago. UNITY will pay for participants’ meals, travel and lodging.
The UNITY ’08 convention will be the largest gathering of journalists in the country and a great opportunity to learn newsroom skills from veterans. The UNITY web publication will become the main medium for students’ content and a prime source of news and information about this historic gathering for convention participants and online users across the country. Students will also continue publishing a daily newspaper and producing radio and a television newscast while also being trained in video, audio, webcasting, podcasting and a mix of multimedia skills that are now key to building a solid résumé.
