Junior Journalists

2009 Junior Journalist Program participants receiving valuable hands on experience thanks to Jim Nelson Media, UNL College of Journalism, WOWT, KETV Newswatch 7, and NRG Media.

In the Omaha Metro area, there are few journalism opportunities for youth outside of the classroom. This eight-week program, formed in 2007, engages high-school-aged youth in the areas of print, television, documentary and social media. The journalism training and engagement we offer focuses on college and career readiness in the field of journalism. The eight-week program is offered annually, typically each summer. This program is open to high school youth in the Omaha Metro area and is free of charge.  For more information, please email the JJ Coordinator, Terri Sanders at terridsanders@gmail.com.
