Off to STN 2007…

One more day of school and I’m off to the STN conference in Anaheim. The Student Television Network is the focal point for tomorrow’s videojournalists. Middle school and high school advisors and students from across the country will gather for a three day conference to learn and compete and meet with peers. It is an outlandish bizarre experience for an old media hound like me. When I first walked into the conference area last year, it was like being at a major political convention – there were reporters, camerafolks…but they were all 18 years old or younger. And they knew what they were doing and what they wanted to do. I had to duck around standup after standup after interview, all taking place in the lobbies and hallways as young news crews worked on their daily competition entries. The workshops are wonderfully informative – and I hope to make it to more of them this year than last year. Next year my goal is to take at least four students down with me. More later…
