Welcome back Media students! Read your 2022 Media officers’ welcome letter here
Welcome to our 2021-2022 program year. We are excited to return to in person meetings and conference events. Please note that all of the documents and procedures needed for our Media section are below.
The purposes of our Media section are to provide an accurate account of the Youth and Government program and to allow students to gain meaningful, real-life experience in journalism through the publication of a newspaper, social media content, and a news broadcast at the District and State Conferences.
The newspaper, various social media posts, and broadcast are entirely the work of the student participants from story assignments to production to distribution. Our goal for our Media participants is for them to fully understand and practice the relationship of media with the government. Students learn to meet deadlines, gain valuable skills like headline writing and interviewing, understand layout and graphic design tools used by media personnel, and more.
Information about media assignments and supporting materials can be found underneath the toggle below.
