Write-On Sports

 The Cardinal Shehan Center offers this unique FREE Summer Journalism Camp. The camp is for rising 7th and 8th grade students and will run for two weeks in mid-July, students are to attend both weeks.


During their time in the Write on Sports program, students will learn the basic elements of good journalism and apply their knowledge to writing spot stories and a feature piece. As part of the learning process, WoS introduces youth to professional journalists and athletes, whom they interview and then write about. Students also write scripts and produce videos in a broadcast studio or on computers. They blog about events they attend, guest they have interviewed, opinions they have about sports. Write on Sports encourages critical thinking, and students are expected to revise their stories multiple times in order to improve their work.
