Our friends at the Texas Tribune are putting together a fantastic opportunity to learn more about major issues that reflect day-to-day life in our great state. On Sept. 24 and 25, the Trib will host The Texas Tribune Festival, featuring a number of movers and shakers in areas including energy and environment, public and higher education, race and immigration, and health and human services. (For a complete list of speakers and bios, click here.)
Why does this matter to you, oh emerging student journalists? This is a unique (and cheap) opportunity to gain exposure to complicated issues that will continue to shift and shape our landscape – landscape you will cover in your future. Student rates are posted at $50.
