2021 Student Workshop

Each year, RTDNAC hosts students from across the Carolinas to network with news managers and educators to gain valuable knowledge to help them prepare for graduation and find their first job.

Even though we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the RTDNAC board feels it is more important than ever to still hold the workshop in some capacity.

Instead of gathering in person, RTDNAC will host its first virtual student workshop, via Zoom, from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 27, 2021.

2020 and 2021 are certainly nothing we could have imagined, but this time has also shown us strong journalists are needed more than ever.

Even though this event is geared to students in the Carolinas, these topics could also benefit new journalists still in their first or second year in the business.

Sessions will be conducted by broadcast professionals, and some topics being addressed include:

  • Know Your “Why?”

  • Know Your Biases

  • Know Your Value

Current students can also request to have their work critiqued (it must be accessible online) by a professional at a later date. (Please note that there is a limited number of one-on-one critiques.)

The workshop is free but individual registration online is required by 5 p.m., Friday Feb. 26. (Information about how to access the event will be sent to your registered email.)
