Week of 12/17
Hey journalists, happy last school week of 2018!
Great job with that news segment on the Veteran's Day Scare (sorry we couldn't come up with a flashier name).
This week we're going to begin work on podcasts (yes, podcasts do often practice journalism). This year (or technically next year, I guess), for the first time ever, National Public Radio is hosting the NPR Student Podcast Challenge. Everyone will choose a topic for her own podcast, and come up with a script over the break. In 2019, we will pick our favorite and produce it for submission in the contest.
NPR journalists will come to the school with the winning submission, interview the teacher and students, and present a trophy. The winning podcast will also be broadcast nationwide on NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered. I'll be honest everybody - I really want to win. But I also want you all to choose topics that truly interest you - because if a topic interests you, chances are it will interest others as well. Let's make a podcast that all Bonnies can be proud of.
