Students from Centennial High School, Cimarron-Memorial High School, Cram Middle School, Foothill High School, Southwest Career and Technical Academy and Sandy Valley High School attended student and adviser led workshops focused on student leadership, digital photography, online news, sports broadcasting and a plethora of other topics.

The organization would like to thank the advisers and students for attending the first workshop and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!
