News 21, a collaborative effort among over 90 journalism fellows from 12 top journalism schools, has launched its new web site.
Another project of News 21 is Syracuse University's video journalism contest for teens called "The Young and the Wireless." Contestants must create a "webisode" in the style of a soap opera.
News 21 schools also include UC Berkeley, USC, Columbia, Northwestern, and many others. Students discuss journalism through a social networking platform at News 21's Ning site.
The program is part of the Carnegie Knight Initiative on the Future of Journalism.
