High school students from around the area recently completed The Robert W. Greene High School Journalism Institute.

The Greene Gazwtte

The institute is a free crash course for high school students that provides expert instruction and hands-on experience in the fundamentals of reporting, writing, editing and photography for print, online and broadcast journalism. Reporters, editors and photographers from some of the New York area’s most respected newspapers, broadcast and online news outlets trained student journalists over the summer using state-of-the-art technology and techniques to help students become the world’s next generation of watchdogs.

Long Island high school students who will be juniors or seniors in the fall live on the campus of Stony Brook University and work in the School of Journalism’s newsroom and broadcast center.

The program is named after Robert W. Greene, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Newsday reporter and editor. Bob was also a founding faculty member of Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism. Students follow in the tradition of Bob Greene’s approach to journalism: that journalists learn best from experience.
