High school journalism students and advisers can attend the Excellence in Journalism Day at Chapman University on Sept. 6 for free.
The event will include 12 Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, two Emmy award-winning broadcasters and two New York Times best-selling nonfiction authors. The event is organized by the Orange County Press Club and Chapman University’s Journalism Program. The list of speakers is on the Press Club’s website.
The event is from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Participants will have a 90-minute lunch on their own.
To register for this event for free, email orangecountypressclub.com and let them know you’re a high school adviser and have your students mention they’re high school students, according to O.C. Press Club President Dennis Foley. Other groups have to pay to participate in this conference, so make sure you email them to let them know you’re attending.
