PIA Press Release

Zambo Norte Press Club to conduct campus journalism workshops

Dipolog City (12 June) -- As part of its commitment to help hone the writing skills among elementary and high school students in Zamboanga del Norte and the cities of Dipolog and Dapitan, the Zamboanga del Norte Press Club (ZNPC) will again spearhead the conduct of a series of campus journalism workshops in nine cluster areas starting next month.

The campus journalism workshop, which is given to elementary and high school students free of charge, has become a regular project of the press club every school year in partnership with the Department of Education (DepED) and Philippine Information Agency (PIA).

Having seen the efforts of the press club in helping the students develop their skills in journalistic writing very laudable, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) and the Embassy of the United States of America through Ambassador Kristie A. Kenney handed the club some financial support.

The NGCP has provided for the cash prizes that will be given to the winners of the writing competitions during the campus journalism workshops. While the US Embassy has donated $3,000 to the club for the purchase of a laptop computer, projector and projector screen to be used by the lecturers during the seminar.

When ZNPC officers led by President Editha Pagente-Tomong went to the US embassy in Manila to receive the cash donation, Press Attache Rebecca Brown Thompson told them that the ZNPC was the first local media organization to gain access to the funds of the US Embassy "after thorough background check" and after having found to have a very credible track record with credible and united officers and members.

Topics to be lectured during campus journalism workshops include newswriting, feature writing, editorial writing, copyreading and headline writing, sports writing, page layout, broadcasting, media ethics and laws on libel. (PIA-ZN) [top]
