Apply to Student Journalists Program

Deadline is Sept. 17 for Beacon, Haldane

The Highlands Current has opened applications for its Student Journalists Program for the 2021-22 academic year.

The program, which is funded by donations, provides an opportunity for students who attend high school in Beacon or Philipstown to be mentored by members of The Current staff while they serve as paid correspondents for our nonprofit newspaper and website. 

The students will primarily cover their high schools and issues related to young people. They are invited to attend editorial meetings and the staff will provide detailed feedback and suggestions to improve and refine their reporting.

For more information, see The deadline is Sept. 17.
