2021-22 Student Journalism Projects

The PNA Foundation recognizes that student journalists do amazing work throughout the school year.  It’s uplifting for anyone who cares about the news media industry to know that creative, committed and passionate students are excelling at what we love.

Below are just some of the many excellent student projects shared and highlighted from the 2021-22 school year.

To have your school’s project(s) added to this page, email Teresa Shaak with an explanation of your project with all applicable links and/or PDF attachments.

Tyrone Area High School – The Eagle Eye News

The local Chamber of Commerce sold and hung banners in downtown Tyrone to honor local veterans.  The students started a project to write biographical stories about the veterans on the banners and created QR code posters to put on the light poles so pedestrians could use their phones to read about the veterans on the poles. Six stories were done last fall and more are in production right now. The plan is for this to be an ongoing project and add more stories each year!

Here is the link to their story and a copy of The Eagle Eye News flyer and an example of the poster put on the light poles.
