Summer High School Internships

Teen Journalism Institute
Teen Journalism Institute

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.
