The Dow Jones News Fund supported the Mayborn School of Journalism Multimedia High School Workshop, a week-long residential workshop at the University of North Texas designed to give students a hands-on experience in storytelling a multimedia world.

Eighteen high school juniors, seniors and recent high school graduates from Texas attended the workshop. This year’s participants covered the Mayborn Literary Nonfiction Conference, titled “The Power of Words.” The students met noted authors and aspiring writers as they produced a multimedia package of stories about the lasting impact words and writing can have on the world.
