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!
