Since 2000, ASNE’s High School Journalism Initiative sparks and sustains youth journalism. Our efforts grow a diverse generation of fledgling journalists and impart a deeper appreciation of the First Amendment and news literacy among all teens.
These ground-breaking youth journalism initiatives are generously funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
