They came from as far as Tennessee for the three-day camp.
Media camp had some strong instructors to lead the workshops, such as Gary Hairlson, who is the video director for St. Louis Post-Dispatch and Stltoday.
Another was Lindenwood’s LUTV News Director Jill Falk, an assistant professor of communications and director of the Journalism Program. Falk teaches Survey of Professional Media, Broadcast Newswriting, Television News Production, Television Reporting and Applied Internet.
Students at the camp had the chance to use Spellmann Center’s state-of-the-art technology for their projects, including the newsrooms for the student newspaper and website, The Legacy and lindenlink.com. Media Now STL also used Twitter, and offered games and prizes for students who followed Twitter activities.
Scholarships were also awarded to three outstanding students: Michael Geheren, Claire Salzman and Christina DeSalvo.
