Journalism Camp Convenes on Belmont’s Campus

Jcamp.jpgThe fourth annual New Century Journalism High School Journalism Camp was held on campus this week with several dozen high school students representing seven states. The students were given opportunities to do real world reporting for print and broadcast in conjunction with workshops on such topics as reporting and writing, video shooting and editing, and media ethics.
In addition, the young journalists reported on a simulated crime on campus and took part in a mock press conference with Belmont officials and Metro Nashville police. Partial funding for this year’s camp was provided by a grant from the Tennessee Press Association Foundation.
