Journalism Camp in Dallas

Gloria Shields All-American Publications Workshop

About the workshop

For four days, you will be immersed in scholastic journalism with one of the best lineups of camp instructors in the country. With a wide variety of classes, there are plenty of inspiring course options. Plan to work hard and come home inspired. Can't make it? I have one other camp opportunity in Kansas. Just skip to the bottom of this form.

Estimated Cost Breakdown

A note about estimates

I have attempted to overestimate costs and will lower the total if possible.


Workshop Cost

$110 (or $150 for online publishing)

This fee will be paid directly to the workshop when you register for classes.


Hotel

$170 (estimated)

This will be paid out of fees paid to Lawrence High School.


Travel Expenses

$250 (estimated/if airline costs exceed $275, we will share a charter bus with another school or school vans, which will decrease the total cost)

This will be paid out of fees paid to Lawrence High School.


Total

$530 (estimated)

Of this, $110 will be paid directly to the workshop. $410 will be paid to Lawrence High School. Make checks out to Lawrence High School.


Senior Editor Discount (will extend to other staffers when able)

$100 off

This will be offered to as many editors as possible. Mrs. Tholen will let students know if they qualify.


Meals

You'll need enough money to cover meals at restaurants near the hotel. They have some less expensive places near it, such as Jimmy Johns.
