Worth 1,000 Words!-- A Digital Camera for Our School Paper

The cost of a Kodak digital camera from Quill Corporation is $297, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Now in its third year, the Wings Academy High School newspaper, "Bird's Eye View," is eager to improve our photography so that the photos tell a story as powerful as the words. As the newspaper has become a school institution, the reporters keep seeking improvement and become more professional in their approach to the class and the newspaper. This one camera will be shared by all students on their reporting assignments. Our journalism class offers an English credit to the academically adventurous and socially curious students at this South Bronx public high school. It is one of the few enrichment classes beyond the requirements of the New York State Regents Curriculum offered in our school. It's a great opportunity for the students who participate in it. Please consider helping them out.
