Each year, two dozen NAHJ student members are asked to trade part of their winter break to spend two weeks at The New York Times Student Journalism Institute, where they work side-by-side with some of the best in the industry to create an interactive news site and newspaper.
Students pitch, report, and write the stories; copy edit; design and layout pages; and shoot photos and video. Their work is guided by mentors — many of them fellow NAHJ members — from The New York Times, the Boston Globe, and the NYT Co. regional newspapers.
