The entire group of participants at the end of the workshop.

On Saturday, April 28, 18 high school journalism students from Montwood, El Dorado, Parkland, Bowie and El Paso high schools, visited the UTEP campus to attend a daylong workshop given by seven student editors and staff from the Department of Student Media and Publications. The high school journalism teachers, who were former students at The Prospector, chose the sophomore and junior students to participate.

From 9 a.m. to noon, the students participated in a series of workshops, including the Feel It/Smell It Labs that worked to enhance their sensory reporting. The students were then divided into five teams, paired with one or two student editors, and given assignments to cover on campus.  They were challenged to cover their assignments and complete them in just three hours with multimedia tools.

The five events were:

  • Flora Fest at the Centennial Museum
