#SRLAcademy journalists profile Washington-area artists, athletes
This summer, 18 students from around the country descended onto our nation’s capital to participate in the inaugural Student Reporting Labs Academy.
The middle and high school fellows helped program leaders develop strategies to engage young people with the news and current affairs and ensure that diverse youth voices are active in the conversations about critical issues facing the nation.
The groups were also tasked with the challenge of producing character profiles of local artists to sharpen their journalism and production skills. Here are their final results.
