Two hundred and twenty-two students from twenty-six schools attended High School Journalism Day at California State University, Northridge on Oct. 21, one of the largest groups ever recorded during the 25 year history of the event.
Students travelled from across Southern California, including from San Dieguito, Carlsbad and Vista del Lago high schools. They drove a collective 652 miles round trip from their schools to CSUN. Students and advisers participated in contests, workshops and Q&A’s with journalism professors and journalists from the LA Times and the local Press Photographers association. CSUN’s Department of Journalism hosted the event in collaboration with the Southern California Journalism Education Association, HS Insider and the LA professional and CSUN student chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists.
