Student reporters honored as #NextGen public media producers
What do an eighth grade news anchor from Newark, N.J., a three-time student Emmy winner from Michigan and Montana’s Journalist of the Year scholarship winner all have in common?
These students, along with eight other youth journalists from across the country, are this year’s PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs All-Stars. The nomination process included teachers and peers, who submitted videos outlining the All-Stars’ contributions to journalism and public media.
Students participating in the Reporting Labs program work with public media mentors from their local stations to produce original news reports. Their work is featured on the national Student Reporting Labs website, the NewsHour’s Rundown and broadcast.
NewsHour Executive Producer Linda Winslow believes it is important for public media outlets to support young journalists.
“I want them to deliver the kind of quality that we encourage today – journalism that makes people better informed citizens of the world,” she said.
Student Reporting Labs is funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) as part of the public media initiative, “American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen,” which is helping communities improve education opportunities for all students and build the next generation of skilled graduates. Student Reporting Labs is also funded by National Science Foundation.
