It’s finally Scholastic Journalism Week across the United States. Today, Thursday, Feb. 24, is also Student Press Freedom Day.
This year’s Scholastic Journalism Week theme is “Amplifying Voices,” and that’s what this podcast — along with Episode 36 and Episode 37 — do. The voices we’ll amplify are those of the Quill and Scroll Student Advisory Board.
In this episode, you’ll hear from four young journalists who are working to make their communities a better place. They are McKenna Hudson from Saint Charles, Missouri; sisters Kasey and Riley Thompson of Harrisonburg, Virginia; and Melissa Liu of Johns Creek, Georgia.
You’ll hear them talk of the important stories they’re working on and their Quill and Scroll projects, both in their own communities and as part of the national Student Advisory Board.
In addition, they’ll address Student Press Freedom Day and its theme — Unmute Yourself.
