Scholastic Press Corps
Monday-Friday, Sept. 11-15
The Scholastic Press Corps is a yearly favorite that often fills up well before the end of the previous school year. This is a fantastic chance for students interested in print and broadcast journalism to experience work in the real world—spending one day at the Fair producing a newsletter, video, or broadcast related to their Fair experience. About 250 students each year craft several story packages–including specific assignments from the Fair–which are then submitted for competition.
The Scholastic Press Corps program was developed to provide high school students with an opportunity to put their journalism and video production skills to the test. The competition puts students in a real "on-the-job" situation where they must use their journalism and video production skills to cover specific stories and to develop a 4-page newsletter or a 4-minute video for a wide range audience. Schools may bring a team of no more than 5 students to compete. This year we have increased the number of teams to 50 - 10 per day.
