Five Montgomery County students have been selected by The Washington Post Young Journalists Development Program to participate in a week-long Digital Workshop from Aug. 6-10.
Among the 11 students from the metro area who were selected for the workshop are: Gabrielle Brooks, of Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville; Brittany Cheng, of Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring; Selina Dudley, of Holton-Arms School in Bethesda; Emilie Plesset, of Winston Churchill High School in Potomac; and Joe Sageman, of Bullis School in Potomac.
The students will have an opportunity to work closely with journalists from The Washington Post and sharpen their skills as multiplatform journalists. Workshop topics include beginner and intermediate level news writing, story development, interviewing, reporting, video editing and more.
The students were selected based on relevant experience, writing samples and recommendations.
The program provides year-round skills training in workshops, seminars, scholarships and mentoring opportunities to high school journalists and advisers across the Washington, D.C. area
