Interscholastic League Press Conference Spring Convention
Ms. Shirack will be attending ILPC, and will help out students who would like to attend. Students can attend workshops on all sorts of Journalism topics, see other schools’ entries, compete in on-site contests in video, photography, or news writing and find out if you or your team (or your classmates) won any awards. Students who will be on Media Production or Yearbook staff for 2017-18 are strongly encouraged to attend.
For full list of break-out sessions, see here. You can pick which workshop sessions are most interesting to you, but we typically pick two sessions per hour and let students pick one of those to attend.
Contact Journalism teacher Lindsey Shirack with any questions:
