Covering Coronavirus: Tips, best practices and programs

Class of 2020: Journalism needs you

The next cohort of journalists will graduate next month into a challenging news environment, made more complicated by widespread work-from-home newsrooms that are shrinking faster than ever. Journalism needs the next generation’s optimistic energy, enthusiastic problem-solving, and innovative ideas. So, let’s meet the class of 2020. 

Inspired by Jill Geisler’s column advising these graduates on how to stand out, we’re extending this invitation: tell us about yourselves. We will begin featuring the class of 2020 in this newsletter, to infuse our work with their spirit and to introduce them to managers and leaders in newsrooms across the U.S. and around the world. If you are a member of the class of 2020 or know someone who is, please spread the word and help us spotlight these rising stars. 

If you are interested in financially supporting student journalists, a donation of any amount to the National Press Club’s scholarship funds will directly impact students and their work.
