Howard University Multicultural Media Academy in partnership with the Dow Jones News Fund


Dow Jones News Fund Health & Wellness Reporting Project — Howard University High School Multicultural Media Academy

Spend two weeks with us, and we will teach you how to use the power of multimedia journalism to cover health and wellness in underserved communities. You will learn how to write news stories, capture audio, shoot and edit video, take photos and incorporate social media. You will also develop an understanding of interrelated social issues — such as housing and hunger — that contribute to making communities unhealthy.

This Health & Wellness Reporting Project is one of 10 in the United States sponsored by the Dow Jones News Fund and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. It is open to U.S. high school students of all backgrounds in ninth through 12th grades, including 2022 graduates who will be entering their first year in college. Your work will appear on Voices of Tomorrow, and it will be distributed by the award-winning Howard University News Service. As a bonus, the best work by seniors and recent graduates will be eligible for the Dow Jones News Fund’s scholarship competition. That could be you!

Students must be committed to being punctual and attending each day of the program for the entire two weeks. You will work with award-winning journalists as well as talented faculty members and college students.

Daily virtual sessions from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, June 20, 2022, to July 1, 2022.
Closing Ceremony on July 1, 2022
