Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab

The Student Newsroom and Innovation Lab immerses undergraduate and graduate college students in a digital media environment by providing hands-on experience during the three-day Online News Association conference, and including the Online Journalism Awards Ceremony and Banquet.

Twenty select students will produce content and tools for the ONA19 Student Newsroom website before and during the conference under the personal guidance of professional mentors.

The Student Newsroom is sponsored in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Univision and the Gannett Foundation. If you are interested in sponsoring the newsroom program, please contact Jessica Strelitz. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.

“The reason [my supervisor] hired me was because of the content I created at ONA17. I landed my dream job before I even graduated, thanks to my experience with the newsroom.”
