College Prep Student Newspaper Materials

My students need a digital camera in order to take pictures for the Purple Newsflash, the first student newspaper in our high schools history.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Create future journalists! Twelve students, ranging from freshman to seniors signed up to create the first student newspaper at our school. They will write all the stories, do all the layout, and take all the pictures. The only problem? We have no camera for them to use.

Our students attend a charter college prep high school in Illinois.

They take double blocks of math and reading, and participate in 20 hours of community service each year. Students wear uniforms and follow a strict code of conduct designed to promote scholarship, discipline, and honor.

My Project

Our students are budding journalists. They want to interview teachers about why they teach, do a section on college application advice tips, cover school sports, and share their opinions about school policy. This camera will allow them to experiment with photojournalism, add to the newspaper, and help them prepare for a career in media after they graduate.

I remember the long nights I spent working on my high school newspaper as editor in chief.

The chance for independence I received through school newspaper have shaped my life ever since. I will always be grateful to my own newspaper adviser, Ms. Smith, for teaching how to be a leader. I hope that with your help this is something I can pass on to my students!
