Broadcast

Broadcast teams were asked to create a feature package based on the following prompt:

“Time to hit the streets for a “Man on the Street”! Find a person or persons (a fellow SIPA attendee, a business owner, a group of musicians) you do not know and tell their story in a 1:30-3 minute personality profile or news feature. Make sure they are not from your school and their story has some human interest value. Ask the right questions, get relevant B-roll and get a secondary source or two.”

Literary magazine teams were asked to write, edit, create and draw inspiration to craft artistic interpretations and content for a magazine spread from the following prompt:

“It is the 50th anniversary of the Tinker decision, ensuring the students do not lose their first amendment rights at the school house gates. Drawing inspiration from free expression and free speech, create a magazine spread that tells a story about raising your voice, someone speaking out or someone expressing themselves through art, music or some other form. Your spread should include both written (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, monologue) and visual (art, photography, mixed media) elements.”
