Fresh off winning a Crystal Award partly for its engagement of area youth in local reporting, East Lansing Info (ELi) today begins accepting applications for its second annual Summer Youth Journalism Program. Applications for the two-week intensive educational program will be processed until the August program reaches its maximum capacity of eight students, ages 15 and up.
The people who bring East Lansing local news through ELi have been honored by the City with a 2018 Crystal Award. At last night's ceremony, four individuals were also honored for their work: Jeff Kusler, Christine Root, and Karen and Jerry Jennings.
The Philadelphia-based Lenfest Institute has profiled ELi as a cutting-edge model for local journalism. ELi's Managing Editor Ann Nichols and Publisher Alice Dreger point you to the profile, and also wish you the best as ELi goes on Spring Break through April 8.
ELi is excited to report that the East Lansing Responsible Hospitality Council (RHC) and a group of associated businesses have stepped up to provide funding for ELi’s Arts and Entertainment reporting for the next year!
ELi has grown so much that we're constantly asked by readers to "look into" new local issues every day. To meet the community's news needs, we need to raise more financial support. Good news: New donors can now have their contributions doubled with a match!
With only a few days to go in our 2018 Sustainability Campaign, we give you the current campaign total and tell you how you can help, even if you've already given...but especially if you've never given.
ELi is making a few changes, and some can't happen without you. We want your photos, and your help identifying community advisors. We also have a new way to get the news delivered to your inbox so you don't miss a thing!
