JOURNALISM OPPORTUNITIES—

  • Ask the Next Prez —  In the Civic Action Project, we connect issues to policy. And presidents make policy. It’s also presidential election season, so it’s a great time to take civic action! What do you think is the most important issue for the next president of the United States to take on? Immigration? Gun laws? Climate change? National security? Now, in a 30-second video you can ask him or her what policy he or she will propose to address this issue. Even if you can’t vote (yet), you can get the attention of policymakers and movers and shakers. CLICK HERE for all the details.
  • Get your best work “Flipped!” JEA and Flipboard are partnering to create the one place for the best high school journalism being produced today.
