The Alabama Scholastic Press Association at the University of Alabama will host middle and high school students (grades 6-12) for its summer journalism camp, The Long Weekend, on campus June 15-17. Check out the program here!
ASPA Director Meredith Cummings said the University of Alabama journalism department is proud to carry on summer programs, are a vital part of ASPA, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2012.
The camp is designed to teach creative and efficient ways to communicate through scholastic newspapers, newsmagazines, yearbooks, literary magazines, broadcast programs and electronic media. It allows students to enjoy a taste of college life and invigorate their interest in scholastic media.
The Long Weekend will feature day and evening classes to help participants gain the tools to produce prize-winning results next school year. When festivities and classes wrap up with an awards presentation, students will have a great start on the upcoming year, and will leave with a solid plan for their school newspaper, yearbook, broadcast program, Web site or literary magazine. If they attend the camp without a staff, they will leave with skills they need to do great journalism in any medium.
