The Lowcountry Source Student Reporter Program helps to encourage high school seniors interested in pursuing a career in the field of journalism by offering hands-on experience, media training and mentoring.
Our program promotes the professional and behavioral skill development needed to be successful in this very competitive field and provides participants with resume-building and publication opportunities that may make them more attractive to prospective colleges and universities.
Student reporters are tasked with writing articles or recording video reports about issues and events going on in and around their schools and neighboring communities.
With their active and dedicated involvement, each student will earn a Certificate of Completion and a personal letter of recommendation from either our Editor In Chief or General Manager.
Interested students must:
✓ Be an enrolled high school senior;
✓ Have a strong interest in communications and journalism;
✓ Routinely read other mainstream media content related to local issues;
✓ Be committed to developing research, writing and reporting skills;
✓ Be available for 4–12 hours a month;
Students are selected based on their applications, which should include their reasons for wanting to be a part of our program, links to a few sample articles and/or video reports, and a letter of recommendation from their principal or an academic advisor. Only two students are selected from each area high school per semester.
