2019 TV Broadcast Camp Gives ThreeSixty Journalism Students Real-world Experience

In partnership with Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, ThreeSixty conducted a one-week TV Broadcast Camp during the 2017, 2018 and 2019 summers. The theme is health equity, and the goal is to inspire more active participation in creating more equitable, healthier communities.

For 2019, media partners included the University of St. Thomas, Padilla, KARE 11, KSTP, WCCO TV, TPT, FOX 9, BMA Cable Networks, University of MN Hubbard School of Journalism & Mass Communication.

ThreeSixty Journalism is a nonprofit program of the College of Arts and Sciences, and uses the principles of strong writing and reporting to help diverse Minnesota youth tell the stories of their lives and communities. Each year, a ThreeSixty student is named a ThreeSixty Scholar and receives a full-tuition, four-year scholarship to study Communication and Journalism at St. Thomas; this year's ThreeSixty Scholar, Heidi Sanchez Avila, will start at St. Thomas in the fall.

Below are the eight videos created by TV Broadcast Camp students this summer.
