John Lewis, former Olympians and student journalism at 2017 Festival of Books

Over 60 students volunteered to report on the 2017 Festival of Books on April 22-23. Students helped cover the Festival on social media through Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter, conducting one-question interviews with attendees about a book that challenged them. Students also led the Q&A for congressman John Lewis and interviewed more than 10 Olympians from previous Games at the LA84 booth.

HS Insider also honored the winners of the Discover Asia Correspondent Contest Sponsored By Korean Air at the Travel & Wellness Stage on Saturday, April 22.
