High schoolers wanted for journalism contest

Citizen Staff Writer

The Southern Arizona Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists is holding a media contest for Tucson-area high school students.

The “2025: Meet the Future of Journalism,” contest’s top prize is a Panasonic digital camera with video capability, a news release said.

The deadline for notification of intent to participate is Wednesday and all Tucson-area high school students affiliated with a media organization at their school are encouraged to apply, the news release said.

Students are expected to prepare a science-fair-style presentation of how they envision journalism in the year 2025.

The presentations will be evaluated by a panel of judges drawn from local newspaper, radio and television outlets, the news release said.

The contest is at 10 a.m. Dec. 1 in the Tucson Newspapers conference rooms, 4850 S. Park Ave. Participation and attendance is free and open to the media and students.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
