During the two-week event, the students hone their reporting skills with help from professional journalists and Schieffer School faculty members. Dozens of students apply for admission, and those admitted are provided full scholarships to cover the cost of hosting them on the TCU campus, where they are trained on news reporting, writing, editing, photography, design and ethics.
They're also exposed to the newspaper-creation process and produce a paper that is distributed to their respective schools and made available online.
The 2013 workshop will be held from June 17 to 28 on the TCU campus and will be open to rising high school juniors and seniors. Interested students can download the application here and a flyer for the event here.
