Website Update:

For immediate release:  A Backpack Journalist is now on line with a new “digital newspaper”.

We will uploading our video stories throughout 2013 and they will rotate often.  The “backpackers” – military youth and at-risk Youth Challenge students who have participated in any event in the past or future will have their work saved and archived and searchable.  This will assure each youth that their work will be available for their portfolios. We also have all of the social media ikons now linked to our front page making them easily accessed.
Under Cover the Assignment, please find each event that we cover with the articles and photo nearby.  We are updating now and bringing up all the work of the “backpackers” to date.

Sign up for our tweets. As we soon begin our A Backpack Journalist Radio Hour, we will be sending out our dates and program content.
CHICAGO – 2013, we kick off off our summer workshop series!  A week of rotations of our curriculum, Cover the Assignment and a day of staff and teacher training.
And, “Messages from my Backpack” – will be available in early Spring, 2013.
We continue to work the “hill” and provide messaging and awareness and support for the military family and their children and youth.  We will be at the 4H Military Partnership Conference in February.
