Al Neuharth Free Spirit Scholarship and Journalism Conference

ATTENTION: high school juniors with a passion for journalism who would be good candidates to attend the journalism conference and to be awarded scholarships.

Effective this year, the conference will be held July 9-14 rather than in March. Also, the conference will be for students who are between their junior year and senior year of high school. Previously, the conference was for high school seniors who were about to graduate.

Juniors can apply online until Feb. 15 at www.freespirit.org
This will be an incredible, potentially life-changing opportunity for 51 fortunate students from across the country. Free Spirit is committed to encouraging, mentoring and supporting young people who aspire to or are curious about journalism careers.
