    Documentary Film and Discussion: “Taking the Lede”
    Facilitator: Jeffrey Browne, University of Colorado
    This 45-­‐minute documentary tells the story of courageous high school journalists who, over the past 20 years have published stories that created waves when they were published. Profiled are a young editor who in the mid-­‐1990s took on Focus on the Family — and won; an investigative journalist who forced the Pentagon to shut down its recruiting; a trio of student-­‐journalists who had to report on tragic event happening in real time at their school; and two students who felt the sting of censorship in a state where their First Amendment rights are supposed to be protected. Stay for a discussion with the producer, writer, director and editor.

    Jeff Browne (Producer) is a journalism instructor in the University of Colorado’s College of Media, Communication and Information. He is the director of CU News Corps, an explanatory/investigative news project staffed by advanced undergraduates and graduate students, who produce multimedia content for professional media partners.

    “More than Marshmallow Fluff”
    Facilitators: Candace Perkins Bowen and John Bowen, Kent State University
    It’s not necessarily a bad thing to print or broadcast lighthearted, fluffy stories, BUT if that’s all your students suggest when signing up for the next publication’s topics, they may need some suggestions on why and how to cover stories that make a difference. Learn about how to help your students so they can and will report on issues that can change your school and your community for the better.

    Candace Perkins Bowen is an associate professor in Kent State’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication and director of both the Center for Scholastic Journalism and the Ohio Scholastic Media Association.

    Facilitator: Peter Bobkowski, University of Kansas

Hint: high school journalists are better citizens than their non-­‐journalism friends. Peter Bobkowski teaches in the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Kansas. From 1999 to 2006 he advised high school publications at St. Thomas High School in Houston.

    11:45 a.m.

    Keynote Address: Mitch Eden, Kirkwood High School (Mo.)
    Dow Jones News Fund 2015 National High School Journalism Teacher of the Year

    “Managing Press-­‐Freedom Controversies”
    Facilitator: Frank LoMonte, Esq., Executive Director, Student Press Law Center
    Students want, and need, to talk about sensitive social issues that can be lighting rods for administrative censorship. We’ll review some recent case studies of teachers who’ve successfully navigated school and community blowback over controversial topics, and deal with some of the most common myths and misconceptions about student press rights.

    Frank LoMonte joined SPLC in January 2008 after practicing law with Atlanta-based Sutherland LLP and clerking for federal judges on the Northern District of Georgia and the Eleventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

    Prof. Steve Listopad of Valley City State University in North Dakota, has been named the winner of the 2016 Innovative Outreach to Scholastic Journalism Award.

    Listopad began a national initiative that has re-started the anti-Hazelwood student-free-speech movement in North Dakota and across the United States. “New Voices USA” was begun four years ago as “New Voices North Dakota” and resulted in the country’s first anti-Hazelwood law passed in 10 years.

    The ripples from “New Voices North Dakota” have been felt across the U.S., wrote Listopad’s nominator, Student Press Law Center Executive Director Frank LoMonte.

    “Inspired by his vision and equipped with his coaching, advocates successfully secured passage of New Voices laws in Maryland and Illinois, with bills pending in Minnesota, Michigan and Rhode Island,” LoMonte wrote. “New Voices organizations are taking shape across the country in accordance with Prof. Listopad’s vision, with chapters in at least 19 states.”

    “It took someone with Prof. Listopad’s indefatigable will to breathe life into a moribund reform movement.”

    Listopad will be honored at the Scholastic Journalism Division’s annual meeting, scheduled for 8:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 5, at the Minneapolis Hilton, home of the annual AEJMC conference.

    Prof. Kimetris Baltrip of Kansas State University has been named the 2016 winner of the will be honored Saturday, Aug. 6, at the annual Minorities and Communication/Scholastic Journalism Division luncheon at the Minneapolis Hilton.

    For more than 10 years at K-State, Baltrip has worked to promote diversity within the school and its student newspaper, and provide opportunities for minority students. During her first three years as adviser, she increased diversity among the Collegian staff by 700 percent, from two students to 14.

    She has also worked in the Manhattan community to promote diversity, creating the “Diversity Discovery” workshop, exposing middle school students to the journalism field. She also resurrected the school’s Diverse Mass Communicators organization, and guided students in creating the first NABJ chapter at Kansas State.

    Baltrip came to K-State in 2005 after stints as a copy editor at both The New York Times and the Houston Chronicle. She also served as an assistant professor at both Prairie View A&M University and Akron University.

    Nicole Kraft of The Ohio State University will be honored as the 2016 David Adams Educator of the Year during the division meeting Friday, Aug. 5.

    Kraft is “a leader at our university — and around the world — at incorporating technology into classroom work,” wrote OSU journalism student Bruce Thomas.

    Kraft has exported her vision of technology in the journalism classroom to several places around the globe, including as far away as Ethiopia. Her presence on AEJMC teaching panels and in scholar-to-scholar poster sessions focuses on her own classroom techniques and the research she does in evaluating those techniques.

    “Nicole’s use of technology, integration of authentic and engaging learning experiences and dedication to high-quality, low-cost learning materials sets her apart,” wrote former OSU student Byron Roush. “Nicole Kraft is one of the most innovative and dedicated instructors I have come across as an undergraduate or graduate student, regardless of discipline.”

    An OSU colleague called Kraft “a pioneer in education and teaching.”

    “Her courses are popular and innovative with the use of methods and technology,” wrote Janet M. Box-Steffensmeier. “She cares about her students and her teaching to her core. She has participated in the dialogue about teaching and learning through talks, panels, grants and her service.”

After college she became the first News Apprentice to work at WCCO-TV in Minneapolis. She is also a 2010 and 2011 American Indian Journalism Institute (AIJI) graduate.
