Stories from intrepid reporters attending the Illinois Press Foundation Journalism Workshop at Eastern Illinois University
The Illinois Reporter is the news website for the Illinois Press Foundation/Eastern Illinois University high school journalism workshop, which is also funded by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. Thanks to these four organizations, we are able to host 18 high school students each June for 11 days, when they’ll learn through brief lectures and hands-on experience. Students publish all of their news stories, photo essays, and multimedia projects on this website. In addition, several news stories also get published in a digital publication. Learn more about the workshop by reading the description and downloading the application on the right column of this website.
