National Election '08 With A Hoosier Twist

Hoosier journalism students should be listed among the winners when the 2008 election process comes to an end today

As Indiana became a battleground state during the primary for the first time in 40 years, high school reporters made it their story too; and they have continued to cover it for their publications and Web sites as candidates have made dozens of campaign stops throughout Indiana.

The effort to share photos with each other has been fun, and it has created a service among our members that we may want to expand for other areas of coverage.

I am still collecting PDFs of campaign coverage for an overall story about theN coverage. We will try to post as many as we can on the IHSPA Web site.

Jim Streisel says Carmel High School’s HiLite staff will be doing live coverage through election evening on the HiLite Web site: http://www.hilite.org

Congratulations to everyone who has worked to inform students about the issues and encourage them to take part in the democratic process.
