The Spokesman-Review, with grant funding from Bank of America and support from the Smith-Barbieri Progressive Fund, is launching a Teen Journalism Institute summer internship program.
Four paid positions are available for a 9-week session.
You must be a high school student located in Spokane, Washington.
Applications must be submitted by May 31.
What You'll Do
Under the direct supervision of a senior editor on the newspaper's staff, students will:
- Write news and features for a daily newspaper
- Work on some longer-term community service stories centered on central themes: teens and mental health in the wake of COVID, news literacy/civics, teens and the economy or education post-pandemic
- Work in every department, including photo, news, features and sports
- Attend twice-weekly sessions with newsroom staff and outside experts to learn about different aspects of journalism and its civic mission
At the end of the 9 weeks, the newspaper will publish a four-page section highlighting the students' work on these topics.
