Storytelling school

Opportunity for Native high school students to attend a journalism storytelling workshop at the University of Kansas; Deadline May 27

The William Allen White School of Journalism at the University of Kansas has launched a Native Storytelling Workshop for high school students, in partnership with the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) and Haskell Indian Nations University. This workshop will take place June 12-16, 2022 on the University of Kansas Lawrence campus.

Indigenous high school students from across the country are encouraged to apply. If chosen, students will be able to visit the KU campus for four days. Students who attend will receive room and board for the duration of the workshop. Scholarships will be available for those who may need assistance with travel costs to and from Lawrence, KS.

During their stay, students will have the opportunity to experience the field of journalism by learning the basics of creating online and digital news content, podcasting and multimedia journalism.

KU journalism professors Dr. Melissa Greene-Blye (Miami Tribe of Oklahoma) and Professor Rebekka Schlichting (Ioway Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska) will lead the workshop. They are joined by Jared Nally (Miami Tribe of Oklahoma), an award-winning former editor of Haskell’s The Indian Leader.

Interested students can apply here.
