Kentucky High School Media Institute
NOTE: The Western Kentucky University School of Journalism & Broadcasting will not be able to host the High School Journalism Workshops this summer (2017) due to several key personnel changes. We highly value these workshops and hope that they will be able to be renewed in the future. The Xposure High School Journalism Workshop will still take place as scheduled. If you have any questions, call the office of The School of Journalism and Broadcasting at 270-745-4144.
A component of the 21st Century Media Program of Distinction at Western Kentucky University, the Kentucky High School Media Institute is funded by Kentucky's Council on Post-Secondary Education Regional Excellence Trust Fund. The Institute's primary goal is to support and supplement scholastic journalism endeavors in Kentucky.
