Here at The Forum, we are constantly working to improve the quality of our stories and the ways in which we bring them to you. That’s why on Oct. 11 we visited J-Day 2012, the annual state high school journalism conference that brings together journalism professionals and educators to speak to students about what to expect in the industry and how to improve their high school publications. Over 1500 student journalists attended the conference, including yearbook and newspaper students from Legend. We learned what it takes to make media professional, and we are already applying what we have learned to the website and our second issue of The Forum, which comes out Nov. 5.
The Forum staff entered the “Best in Show” contest with its first issue of the year and placed 3rd in the 5A category. There were at least 14 newspapers entered in the contest.
We’re called YourLegend for a reason: we’re working for you. We’re dedicated to bringing you only the best, and attending J-Day is a stepping stone on the road to success.
