A Backpack Journalist presents Cover the Assignment AUSA!


A Backpack Journalist team of teachers and business professionals will be overseeing and teaching writing, broadcast journalism and photojournalism training that ultimately will allow a group of military youth to:

“COVER THE ASSIGNMENT – On location in Washington, D.C. at the annual AUSA meeting – OCTOBER 2011”

This special group of military youth will become “public affairs reporters” during the event and report on the AUSA Meeting happenings via writing and photo stories. During the AUSA Family Forum, their work will be presented live, online, and also in video that they create from their work. Additionally, the teams of military youth will choose a presenter and then they will present directly to those in attendance regarding their experience during the AUSA meeting, and also the military life, per se.

There are 8 National Guard Military Youth – 2 US Army Reserve, Child Youth School Services and 10 expected from the US Army Installations of Ft. Bragg & Ft. Campbell.

On the exhibition floor – A Backpack Journalist will have a booth – a “Digital Mobile Newsroom” that has been built by our partner: Ventana Productions, Washington, DC.

Within this booth, all attendees of the AUSA meeting will be able to watch as our reporters, directors, producers, filmmakers, editors – assemble their work.
