About the Workshop
The second Southern Mississippi Journalism High School Journalism Workshop will be held on the University of Southern Mississippi campus in Hattiesburg June 5-10, 2011. The workshop is hosted by the USM School of Mass Communication and Journalism.
Seventeen Mississippi high school students have been selected to spend the week working with professional journalists, USM journalism faculty and USM journalism students.
They’ll produce TV and radio newscasts, a newspaper and this Web site. The workshop is free to students, thanks to the generous support of the Dow Jones News Fund, the Mississippi Press Association and the DREAM of Hattiesburg.
