Region 1

Region 1 face-to-face workshop has been canceled

The OSMA Board reluctantly canceled the scheduled Sept. 24 Region 1 workshop because of the uncertainty of the COVID-19 virus and the highly contagious Delta variant. Watch for information about lesson plan packages that will be available to teachers/advisers at member schools.

These will include many topics the workshop would have offered: dealing with legal and ethical situations; solving photo challenges and learning how to tell award-winning stories, and some give crash courses on finding story ideas or sources beyond the first five clueless kids in the hall.

The always-popular “Grammar Slammer,” which shows typical mistakes and how to fix them, is even in a week-by-week format that will be useful to all student media. .

Watch for more info coming soon on how to access this material. I will be available Sept. 24, the same date we had hoped to host you all at Kent State.
