Incoming HPHS senior Eric Johnsen is one of 15 Texas high school students selected to attend UNT’s Multimedia High School journalism summer workshop in July.
The week-long workshop, hosted by UNT’s Mayborn School of Journalism, gives juniors and seniors or recent graduates experience in multimedia storytelling through news articles, online photo galleries, blogs, and broadcast news packages.
Students will attend the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference from July 17-19 at the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center, where they will take classes, interview speakers, and attend keynote speaker dinners.
They will spend the rest of the week at the UNT campus in Denton, where they will work in teams to create multimedia feature stories related to economic, racial, social, or other divisions in American society.
Students will upload their work to a website, and their work will be shown at a graduation ceremony at the end of the workshop.
