Native American High School Broadcast Workshop
Broadcasters Essay Contest for Native American High School Students Includes Week at NAU
Flagstaff, Arizona – April 4, 2013- In an effort to encourage more Native American students to seek careers in the broadcast industry, Northern Arizona University has combined with broadcast industry sponsors to host a Native American High School Broadcast Workshop from June 17-22. Native American High School students are encouraged to visit the workshop’s website at www.nativeamericanbroadcastworkshop.org and apply.
The fifteen high school students whose essays are selected will learn how to create professional quality radio and television productions during the week they spend on NAU’s Flagstaff Campus and will experience what college life is like.
The students will have access to state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment used by college students in NAU’s School of Communication. During their stay, students will attend pre-production, production and post-production work sessions with NAU faculty and staff. The students will also meet broadcast industry professionals and visit media production and broadcast facilities during the workshop.
The tuition for this workshop is $50. That covers a six-night stay in an NAU residence hall and all meals. Scholarships are available. First preference will go to high school juniors and seniors who complete the application and write competitive essays. Deadline for applications is April 30, 2013.
