Student News Action Network: Showcasing the best in student journalism November 1, 2010

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in International education.

The Student News Action Network is an online platform connecting student journalism teams across dozens of countries to report on current news events. Their website is well worth checking out for examples of high school and international school students writing about a wide range of global and local issues: it can be really quite inspiring.

Created and maintained by students and teachers at Washington International School, in collaboration with Taking ITGlobal, the Student News Action Network takes the concept of the school newspaper beyond school walls and the confines of print media, allowing students to work collaboratively on a global level to create an interactive, multimedia-rich student-driven online newspaper.

Entries are now being accepted for their global student journalism competition, the News Action Challenge, encouraging original reporting to encourage in-depth examination of current events.

To be eligible for entry into the competition, contributions must be original and composed by high school student members of News Action aged 18 and younger. Contributions submitted by Monday, January 31, 2011 will be considered for prizes that will be awarded shortly thereafter.
