To revitalize high school journalism and revamp www.highschooljournalism.org
The Council of National Journalism Organizations raises the visibility and membership of professional journalism groups and helps them work efficiently together. During the past decade, the council’s membership has more than doubled to 53 groups. These groups, representing at least 25,000 American journalists, set standards and offer training. With this grant, the council will work with the Society of Professional Journalists to improve and expand www.journalismtraining.org, a calendar of training opportunities, and to revamp its own web site, www.cnjo.org, and to better market the services of professional journalism organizations.
