HSJI 2020 cancelled


Sadly, this summer’s High School Journalism Institute has been cancelled.

Due to the rapidly evolving novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and with the health and safety of our guests in mind, both sessions of HSJI — July 6-10 and July 12-16 — have been cancelled. Consequently, those who have already registered for this summer’s Institute will receive a full refund via their original method of payment.

While we are disappointed that we will not be hosting our annual July workshops this year, HSJI has a long tradition of serving scholastic journalism and journalism educators. We hope you can join us in July 2021 when we will celebrate our 74th year.

If you have any questions, please contact director Teresa White or administrative services coordinator Linda Johnson.
