Oregon State Student Media Challenge

15 Dec

Recently I was invited to, and took part in, OSU’s Student Media Advanced Skills Training. Below gives more detail about the event, and what myself and other media focused students took part in for the past two days.

Sounds exciting huh?! That’s because it was. Not only did the faculty make this event fun but they made it a learning experience. In my belief for students who want to go into any media field you not only need to have learned course material but you should have applied it before jumping into real work experience. Reading about media ethics is much different than using your guiding principles in a real ethical dilemma.

For our media challenge our student groups had to produce a multimedia presentation of our media coverage on a mock spot news piece. Every group covered the same breaking news event (staged) at around 8:30 a.m. yesterday morning and produced a multimedia package for the judges at promptly 4:00 p.m. that afternoon.

Everyone’s presentations were outstanding, but at the end of the day my phenomenal partners (aka OSU Insider) took the first place trophy home. Click on this link: OSU Insider, or click on the photo below to take a look at our award winning work.
