Hosted by the Pittsburgh Black Media Federation, the workshop trains teens in newspaper, TV, podcast, online, photo and video journalism at Point Park University.
In a change from past years, the 2017 workshop will be held only during the day on four consecutive Saturdays: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 15 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 22, July 29 and Aug. 5. In addition, students in the workshop’s broadcasting section will participate in a newscast taping at KDKA, Downtown, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 3. Students of all ethnic backgrounds are welcome to apply for the free program.
Teens who will be high school juniors or seniors in the 2017-18 school year, and students who will graduate in 2017, are eligible to apply. Students may apply online at www.pbmf.org or use the application that is attached to this email. I've also attached a letter explaining the workshop.
