Native American Broadcast Journalism Workshop
Andy Harvey Broadcast Journalism Workshop
Live and Learn in Flagstaff, Arizona
The Andy Harvey Native American Broadcast Workshop brings 25 Native American high school students from across Arizona & the Southwest to the NAU Flagstaff campus for a week each summer to learn the “ins and outs” of broadcast journalism.
Held in June, workshop participants live in residence halls on the Northern Arizona University campus in Flagstaff and work in the School of Communication’s Media Innovation Center newsroom and HD studio.
Working alongside NAU students and broadcast journalism professionals, the students produce multimedia stories, learn how to conduct interviews and produce a live-to-tape news broadcast covering local news and work on other media projects.
This workshop encourages Native American high school students to work together to tell the stories that are important to them and their communities. We give them the tools to take that first step. This was the vision of the late Andy Harvey, NAU Journalism alumnus and multi-media reporter. Andy worked to tell the stories important to him at KPNX 12 News in Phoenix. His dream was that the next generation would take up the torch and be the storytellers of their communities.
The primary goals of the workshop are to enable Native American students to use the tools and the skills learned at the workshop to tell their own stories and promote aspirations to attend college. This workshop empowers indigenous youth to be agents of positive change in their communities by giving voice to Native American experience.
Cost: $50 tuition. Students are provided room & all meals during the week. Full scholarships are available.
Travel to/from Flagstaff is not provided.
