Past Online Reporter Projects

Beginning in 2009, the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association (PNA) Foundation and the Pennsylvania Society of News Editors (PSNE) created the "Online Reporter Project". This project has provided journalism and communications college students the unique opportunity to cover the annual Pennsylvania Press Conference and create a comprehensive online operation.  Review the previous projects below.
