Every summer, the Flint Hills Publications Workshop at Kansas State University welcomes student journalists from the Midwest to a jam-packed 2.5 day journalism camp filled with 21st century instruction by top-notch advisers, meaningful keynote speakers and campus entertainment to rival journalism workshops in metro cities twice our size!
The 2019 workshop, July 14-16 in Manhattan, Kansas, features five new features to enhance the K-State and Kedzie Hall experience for our high school journalists and advisers during their stay in the “Little Apple”.
#1-NEW course in Drone journalism and Video Storytelling taught by JMC drone expert Nick Homburg where students find innovative ways to use drones in their website storytelling or high school video programs.
#2-NEW partnership with K-State athletics to take our Sports Reporting strand to the next level. This may include working with coaches and athletes at the Division I level and touring state-of-the-art facilities offered to our student athletes.
#3-5, 10 and 15 student registration discount that provides financial relief for schools that send multiple staffers or entire teams to our workshop. The more the merrier!
#4-(6) student scholarships that cover all camps costs, provided by the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass Communications. These can be found here-https://www.flinthillsworkshop.com/scholarships/
#5-“Who Wants to be a Wildcat” trivia game for campers to earn amazing KSU Wildcat swag and other prizes.
We also offer an Advising track with nationally recognized Pittsburg High School adviser Emily Smith. This track can be helpful for new or veteran advisers, and features a free one-year membership to JEA and access to the JEA journalism curriculum. You also get a first-hand look at the JEA bookstore in person!
