ASNE-APME live, silent auction to benefit both organizations

An annual conference auction is a staple for APME and benefits the APME Foundation, which helps fund NewsTrain and other programs. ASNE has not had an auction in recent years but will share the stage for perhaps the biggest auction to fund journalism initiatives in recent years.


The live auction -- featuring vacation getaways and more -- will be held during the opening night reception at the Tribune Tower. A small silent auction with top items also will take place that night.

Afternoon session: Editors, technologists get to trade places
Afternoon session, Saturday, May 3: We will break you into two groups, and editors and data specialists will trade places to learn from each other. By using simple HTML and Git, editors will come away with knowledge of both coding and coding workflow works in newsrooms. Data specialists will become editors for a day and learn how to craft a compelling and accurate story. Session leaders: Amanda Krauss, director of technology, The Texas Tribune, and Christian MacDonald, online projects and data editor, the Austin American-Statesman.

First Amendment

Since its founding in 1922, ASNE has been a fierce advocate for First Amendment freedoms and open government. Every year, we help organize 1 for All's Free to Tweet scholarship program, a two-week competition where high schoolers tweet about the First Amendment. Five winning tweets are chosen annually, and each winner receives a $5,000 college scholarship. We also sponsor Sunshine Week, an annual inititative designed to facilitate conversation about the importance of transparent government. During the celebration, many news organizations choose to publish content about open government, and our partners host a number of events celebrating and promoting the public's right to know. Visit the Sunshine Week website for more information and free resources.

Youth Journalism
We know many teens get their news from social media, websites and blogs. That’s why it’s so important to inspire teens to read analytically and critically consider the source of their news. For more than a decade, ASNE has led the youth journalism movement by promoting the values of news literacy and excellence in journalism. We host my.hsj.org, the world’s largest online youth journalism network, as well as hsj.org, which provides hundreds of journalism resources to help teachers increase news literacy at their schools. The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation funded this initiative. We’ve also trained more than 1900 teachers at the Reynolds High School Journalism Institute, which is held annually at five universities and funded with a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. To read more about youth journalism, click here.
