The Iowa Newspaper Foundation is excited for the continuation of a program specifically targeting the next generation of Iowa newspaper professionals. The INF has again partnered with the Iowa Association of Business and Industry Foundation's Business Horizons program to offer an in-depth media experience for Iowa high school students, ninth through 12 graders.
The Business Horizons program is a one-of-a-kind, hands-on, action-oriented weeklong summer program for high school students who want to learn about the world of business and what the future holds for them. For the second year, Business Horizons will offer a media track for students interested in a career in the newspaper industry.
The goal of the media track is to develop the next generation of Iowa newspaper professionals. The program has been designed to spark students' understanding of the media industry as a viable career opportunity in Iowa.
The camp will be held July 21 through 25 on the campus of Central College in Pella. High school students who participate in Business Horizons and then go on to attend Central College will be guaranteed a minimum of $12,000 in Central College scholarship assistance. An option to earn college credit will also be available.
A $75 discount is currently being offered for applications. At this special discounted rate, the week-long program is only $275. If you are interested in getting involved with the program or know a student who would like to attend, please contact Jennifer Asa at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-422-9070.
