Northwestern State University’s Department of New Media, Journalism and Communication Arts will host its 43rd Journalism Day, “J-Day,” Friday Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. until noon. The free event, open to individual high school students and schools, starts in the TV Studio, Room 143 of Kyser Hall.
Communication and media industry professionals will lead career-exploration sessions to offer guidance in academic course choices and job expectations.
Participants can compete in journalism-related events: media writing, television broadcast news, impromptu speaking, radio and photojournalism. Winners are eligible for a $500 scholarship to attend NSU and major in communication.
Schools can submit a newspaper issue or yearbook for competition.
