The seventh annual Andy Harvey Broadcast Journalism Workshop was held at the School of Communication at Northern Arizona University from June 17 to June 23, 2018.
Twenty-four Native American high school students from across Arizona & the Southwest stayed on the NAU Flagstaff campus for a week to learn the “ins and outs” of broadcast journalism.
Working alongside NAU students and broadcast journalism professionals, the students produce multimedia stories, learn how to conduct interviews and produce a live-to-tape news broadcast covering the day’s local news.
This workshop encourages Native American high school students to work together to tell the stories that are most important to them and their communities. This summer participants focused on health-related issues such as physical fitness, healthy eating and suicide prevention.
Here is a live-to-tape news broadcast produced by the students on health-related issues:
