Sign Up For Summer High School Journalism Workshops

Sign Up For Summer High School Journalism Workshops
     The Connecticut Health I-Team is offering unique, one-week workshops in journalism this July for high school students interested in refining their research and writing skills, while learning about the evolving field of journalism from award-winning writers and editors. 
     The workshops, now in their fourth year, will be held at: Quinnipiac University (Hamden), Yale University (New Haven) and the University of Connecticut (Storrs). 
     The programs provide select students with the opportunity to spend a week on a university campus, learning the tools of investigative journalism by participating in seminars led by professional journalists; working on stories for publication; and spending a day visiting local newsrooms. 
     Students ages 16 and older are eligible to apply for the programs, which are led by a team of instructors including:  Kate Farrish, formerly an award-winning reporter for the Hartford Courant and now a UConn adjunct professor of journalism; C-HIT senior writer and co-founder Lisa Chedekel, formerly an investigative reporter for the Courant, where she won several national awards; and C-HIT Editor Lynne DeLucia, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former Courant editor. 
     C-HIT's workshop graduates have gone on to study at major universities, have been awarded scholarships through the Dow Jones News Fund, and have secured internships at major newspapers, including the Courant
     Dates are: UConn, July 14-18; Quinnipiac University, July 21-25; and Yale University, July 28-Aug. 1. 
     For information, go to  www.c-hit.org or contact Lynne DeLucia at delucia@c-hit.org.
