WASHINGTON (WUSA 9) — Athletic directors, guidance counselors, newspaper and yearbook teachers; the sports department at WUSA 9 has an exciting opportunity for your students!
We’re looking to add to our team of high school sports journalists!
So if you know a high school junior or senior from the DMV who has a passion for sports, is interested in winning a college scholarship AND wants to develop their journalism skills with the pros — send ‘em our way!
Through our Campus Correspondent program, high schoolers learn how to film athletic events, practice on-camera reporting AND get their work published on our website, a division of USA TODAY!
We’re kicking off our fourth year! So far 95 local high schoolers have participated in the program AND we’ve awarded $48,000 in college scholarships thanks to our sponsor Toyota.
Applying is easy, just have your student fill out the application below. At the start of each athletic season, we accept new correspondents! They attend a training session at our broadcast house in DC where they get a FREE flip-style video camera and official Campus Correspondent apparel.
After training, Correspondents set out to cover their school’s athletic programs! From football to basketball, softball, lacrosse and more, students report on their favorite sports teams.
THEN at the end of the school year, our top Campus Correspondents win COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS!
We’re looking forward to hearing from students at YOUR school and another exciting year on WUSA 9 and USA TODAY HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS.
