Think of how much fun you could have next year if you were on the staff of the coolest high school newspaper and website in the universe!
We're looking for the best and brightest writers, photographers, video masters and social media fanatics to apply to join us for the 2014-15 school year. The requirements: You have to be in high school (as of next school year, and homeschool is fine, too) and you have to be passionate about journalism. Oh, and of course, you have to be reliable, meet deadlines, make one staff meeting a month and be committed to the cause. We give new staffers all their meeting dates before the school year starts, so you can let your coach know what date you'll have to miss practice.
There will be a mandatory three-day training session (Aug. 6-8) for those who are selected. It is really important that you attend.
Look for the JOIN US box on the homepage. Fill it out completely and honestly. If you are involved in 18 different extracurricular activities already, weigh your priorities. The busiest students indeed make the best staffers, but be realistic. The deadline is May 18.
