Backpack Journalists Have Great Stories to Tell!

Backpack Journalists at the Kentlands Noodles & CompanyWhat a great two weeks I had with the first session of MCM’s Summer Backpack Journalism Academy!  The newest journalists were full of energy and great ideas. I cannot wait to share their stories with you. The topics range from The Town of Somerset 4th of July Celebration to MCPS Bell Times and Same Sex Marriage. Those are just a few topics.  What a variety. Just a few more weeks until our journalists will be taking over my blog to share them with you.

Are you looking for something for your teen to do next week? Then consider MCM’s Backpack Journalism Academy – Session 2. You’ll be glad you did. There are a few spaces available, so Backpack Journalism Academy soon!
