Hawaii Scholastic Journalism Association

Journalism Day 2020

Journalism Day 2020 will look quite different than past years! HSJA is taking the lead to host a virtual event on Oct. 17. Mark the date, tell your students, and check this website for updates.

An opportunity with Report For America
Kevin Knodell and Eleni Avedeno of Civil Beat are Report For America Corps members and are running a project that might interest you and your students. The plan is to launch a student-driven multimedia project they are calling Hawaii Covid Chronicles (for now). They will put together a website to host blog posts, videos, podcasts and other forms of media that reflect this time. They will train students, provide editing and guidance and do a few workshops. You can contact Kevin at [email protected]
Next Meeting
Our next HSJA meeting will be Saturday, Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. via Zoom. Be on the lookout for a link that morning. Hillary Davis of the Student Press Law Center in Washington D.C. will join us.
