Student Leaders Selected for JCamp Class of 2017

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2017) - The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) selected 42 high school students from across the country to participate in its signature student program, JCamp.

The annual program, which celebrates its 17th anniversary in 2017, will take place July 22 - 27 and will be hosted by Temple University's Lew Klein College of Media and Communication in Philadelphia, PA. JCamp is a six-day multicultural journalism training program for freshmen, sophomores and juniors in high school who attend the camp at no cost thanks in large part to the support of donors such as the Annie E. Casey Foundation and other sponsors.

Students will receive hands-on training in writing, reporting, photography, broadcast and online media from professional journalists serving as faculty mentors. Among JCamp's core values are the importance of diversity in the newsroom and in media coverage, as well as the value of cross-cultural communication skills, networking, media ethics and the fundamentals of leadership and collaboration.

Over 650 students have graduated from JCamp since 2001.

"This is a critical time for the news industry to reach the next generation of journalists and that generation must represent the diversity of this country. The JCamp program is a vital part of that outreach and one that the Klein College of Media and Communication at Temple is proud to support," said Arlene Morgan, assistant dean of external affairs.

Arelis Hernandez, political reporter for The Washington Post and JCamp 2004 alumna, returns as the program's director. "When people ask me what makes JCamp so special, I point them to our students," said Hernandez. "In its 17th year in operation, JCamp alumni have gone off to stellar careers and become leaders within their own communities and fields, taking to heart the one-on-one instruction on fact-finding, the deep social questions we explore and the sense of duty we promote to tell the truth even when it hurts. At JCamp, our mission is not limited to creating the next generation of media professionals, but of building civic leaders who value the freedom of the press, diversity and critical thinking. In their applications, our 2017 class showed us these are the subjects they are thinking about as young people."

Neal Justin, TV critic for The Minneapolis Star Tribune, returns this year as JCamp's associate director. The volunteer faculty members include Ben Bartenstein, reporter for Bloomberg News; Clea Benson, deputy editor for POLITICO Pro; Paul Cheung, Director of Visual Journalism for NBC News Digital; Cristela Guerra, reporter for The Boston Globe; Kyndell Harkness, news and sports photo editor for The Minneapolis Star Tribune; Caridad Hernandez, executive producer, investigations and special projects for CBS4 Miami; Timmy Huynh, photo editor for The Wall Street Journal; and Padma Rama, broadcast journalist for The Associated Press.

Not Happy, John: Defending Our Democracy (2004)
Did you hear the one about the barbeque invite list? Margo Kingston tells it that, in October 2003, Prime Minister John Howard hosted a private function at the Lodge at the public's expense. The guest of honour? George Bush, President of the United States. The stated purpose of the gathering? So that Bush -- in the midst of a rushed and highly ritualised visit to Australia -- would have a chance to meet and chew prawns with 'a cross-section of the Australian community who had each made a contribution to Australia in different ways'. The rub? Howard personally selected the invitees: a ...

Donald Thomson in Arnhem Land (2003)
The fact must be stressed that the difference between a nomadic race with its peculiar and specialised adaptations and social obligations, and a gardening people, with an established village life, is more than a matter of environment, it depends on deeper factors, and has a definite psychological basis. (p118)These words capture both Donald Thomson's respect for Australia's indigenous people and his commitment to championing a way of life missionaries and government officials were bent on destroying. Donald Thomson, as readers of this handsome book ...

Fresh Cuttings (2003)
For many years University of Queensland Press (UQP) has played an active role in ensuring the publication of the writing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This has been achieved through two main initiatives. One is the David Unaipon Award. UQP established the award in 1988 for unpublished Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers. Named in honour of David Unaipon (1872-1967) who, in 1929, was the first Indigenous author to be published in Australia. The award is an annual literary competition for unpublished manuscripts in any writing genre or Indigenous language by an ...

Litigation: Past and Present (2004)
The legendary litigious character of American society is commonly regarded as an example to be avoided in Australia. The collapse of the private medical insurer, United Medical Protection, in 2001 prompted widespread media and political attention in Australia to what was described as a 'litigation crisis'. As Ted Wright and Angela Melville show in their lively treatment of civil litigation trends in this book, such a crisis was likely generated by something other than the trends in personal injury litigation in NSW which drifted downwards in the five years before the 'crisis'. In a phenomenon ...

Lives in Limbo: Voices of Refugees Under Temporary Protection (2004)
In mid 2004, the Australian Government made two decisions that taken at face value, seemed to indicate a softening of policy towards asylum seekers. While previous governments had far from perfect records in relation to our responsibility to refugees, the Howard Government has been severely criticised for exploiting the plight of asylum seekers for political gain. The list of accusations is long but it includes: mandatory detention, turning vessels away, changing the nation's boundaries, compromising Pacific neighbours, contracting out responsibility for remote camps, denying media access to ...
