Read the Storify: “St. Joe’s NewsHive Creates Buzz”
NewsHive is a pop-up newsroom and digital storytelling competition. It is a collaborative project where teens work in small teams of peers led by professional media mentors who will introduce you to new ways to tell stories that is not just text and is more than images. This is a hands-on, interactive workshop based event. Our theme for 2015 will be Environmental Justice.
We are looking for high school teens who like to make stuff and tell stories. Experience with high school journalism is a plus and ability to work with others is a must.
Day 1: Evening Kick-Off event.
The kick-off event will create opportunities for teams to recruit new members and meet their mentors in preparation for the following day of media production. Groups can share contact information and begin their brainstorms and initial preparation overnight.
Day 2: Media Project work and competition
Participants will arrive and immediately begin work on their projects. Projects will center on the issues affecting young people in NYC around the theme of environmental justice. All will use a digital storytelling tool and will be created under the guidance of adult mentors who will provide materials to structure and scaffold the work, so that groups can complete their projects on time.
