VOX Media Cafe 2016 – Week 3: The End of Everything

by share

What a way to finish up a wonderful final week at VOX Media Cafe 2016! We got to watch these dedicated teens grow from being a group that barely knew each other to a well-oiled set of wheels constantly turning and being creative. In the three weeks we’ve all been together, we watched them become journalists fighting for the story that needs to be told.

The first week, they decided on their topics and assembled into their teams. The next week, they went out for videos, photos and interviews. Now, in this final week, they produced their final products — multimedia package websites!

On day one, the campers learned from VOX editor Rich Eldredge and CNN senior producer Christina Zdanowicz on what should go into their media packages.


The teens continue to plan and build their websites with help from the adult volunteers from Jay Walter Thompson INSIDE.
