The annual New Mexico Press Association Foundation High School Journalism Workshop will be held June 2-5 at the University of New Mexico.

Rising juniors and seniors from New Mexico high schools are invited to attend. As in past years, the workshop will have the students spend the three days creating their own newspaper – both in print and digital formats. In the past, the workshop focused mainly on the print product, but this year multimedia stories will be added to the mix.

Cost for the workshop is $150 with scholarships available for those students who can’t afford to pay.

News professionals from throughout the state will be on hand to guide the creation of “The Future Press” as well as provide classroom instruction and meaningful lectures. The Foundation is encouraging local newspapers to touch base with their communities to get the word out and recruit students who might be interested in attending.

More information on the workshop is available online at
