Students, want to get your work in front of over 1,400 digital journalism professionals and network with leaders in the industry — not to mention potential employers? Would it seal the deal if it were all free?
It’s not too good to be true. Apply to be one of 20 select students in the ONA13 Student Newsroom, sponsored by Google, at the 2013 Online News Association Conference and Awards Banquet, Oct. 17–19, in Atlanta.
The Student Newsroom, supported for the fourth year by Google, immerses college students in a digital media environment by providing hands-on experience producing content for the ONA13 website before and during the conference, under the personal guidance of professional mentors. Students also have the opportunity to attend ONA13 programming led by experts in digital journalism, network with attendees and acquire and flex new digital media skills. Lodging, travel and registration expenses are covered.
Applications for both students and mentors must be received by May 2 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
We’re also looking for mentors
Sixteen Student Newsroom mentors with digital skills have an opportunity to guide one or two students before and during the conference, working one-on-one with them to help develop story ideas and advise coverage production. Mentors receive free conference registration. They also have a chance to pay it forward, shaping the skills of tomorrow’s leaders in digital journalism.
We look forward to seeing your applications,
