We’re Hiring Summer Positions

The Montana Media Lab at the University of Montana School of Journalism seeks a field coordinator and student instructors for its News Literacy and Digital Storytelling initiative aimed at providing news literacy and digital storytelling trainings to rural and Native American youth across Montana.

Deadline to apply is April 23, 2021.

The Coronavirus pandemic has forced all of us to adapt to a new reality of social distancing. For kids, this reality has been especially hard.

To help middle and high school students across Montana document this unprecedented time in their lives, the Montana Media Lab launched a state-wide, oral history project. We asked high school and middle school students to document their experiences by recording interviews with grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers and friends.

Head over to Montana Public Radio to listen to these heartfelt conversations.
