Last weekend a group of 20 broadcast, yearbook, newspaper, and photography students went to Chicago for the annual National High School Journalism Convention. The conference lasted four days with over a hundred of classes offered everyday.

Some of the sessions covered topics such as design trends, how to edit pictures, and video presentation techniques.

“I learned more about the journalism world and different techniques that are important when presenting a broadcast,” senior and broadcast staff member Jessie Baez said.

The students learned many new ideas and topics to better the way they present news to the whole school.

“My favorite session was the first one we went to about news writing. We learned a lot of cool things we can do as a staff and ways to better our writing and interviewing,” junior and newspaper staff member Julia McCarthy said.

“My favorite session was about learning good techniques for the Humans of Holy Trinity segments we do because the speaker gave us good advice to really step up our reporting skills,” Baez said.

Everyone who went on this trip spent several hours each day working towards bettering their program, but they didn’t spend all day at the convention.

“When we weren’t in session, we were either walking around Chicago, stopping by cute little restaurants with really good food, at the Bean, or on top of a 103 story glass building,” Bias said.

“Overall, we had a lot of fun together and it was something really cool to experience,” McCarthy said.
