An organization dedicated to Louisiana's high school journalism teachers, advisers and students.
Twenty-eight students attended the annual Louisiana Scholastic Press Association Summer Institute, an intensive one-week journalism training program for high school students. Students from Louisiana, Texas, Florida, and Mississippi attended broadcast, design, multimedia, and writing classes. They learned reporting and writing for print and digital platforms, created personal websites and used multimedia storytelling platforms. Students also received hands-on training in video production and anchoring.
Recognized as the Southeast’s Number One high school media-learning program, the LSPA Summer Institute’s mission is to provide high school students with the skills needed to produce top-notch scholastic media, including newspapers, broadcast, yearbooks and multimedia. Students work closely with faculty and media professionals, utilizing Manship’s state-of-the-art laboratories and production facilities.

At the Louisiana Scholastic Press Association (LSPA) Summer Institute, the students created personal website to display their assignments. Participations wrote news articles from a press conference and a feature story on another participation. They also used multimedia platforms, StoryMap and Storify, to visualize their experiences. Students can continue to update their website as time continues. LSPA hopes that students will take their new skills and incorporate them into their school’s publications.
