The Iowa High School Journalism Project is a collaboration between five different high schools across the state of Iowa, and lead by IowaWatch. The goal of the project is to make the voices of high school journalists heard across the state of Iowa, in amplify important issues within the high school sphere.
For this project, high school students reported on two issues: mental health resources available to high school students and the lack of diversity in Advanced Placement (AP) classes. My job as an honors student and manager of the project was to combine the original reporting that students provided into two in-depth, cohesive stories about the aforementioned topics.
This honors project breaks statewide news with both stories, which will be published later this month on the Iowa Center for Public Affairs Journalism website. The stories provide an honest look at both topics addressed, and provide and explanation for how these issues are being addressed at the local and state level.
