About Us

Baruch College’s NYC High School Journalism Collaborative is an initiative to support high school journalism throughout New York City’s public high schools.  The Collaborative is part of Baruch College’s Department of Journalism and the Writing Professions.  This grant-funded program, directed by Professor Geanne Belton, includes an annual NYC High School Journalism Conference, now in its 18th year, an annual NYC public high school journalism competition, and a new course for teachers to help high schools that don’t have newspapers to launch newspapers.  Our goal is to encourage and support NYC public high school student newspapers, student journalists, and newspaper teacher-advisors with an educational and incentivizing program.

If you are a NYC public high school administrator, teacher or student journalist seeking information, interested in getting involved with our program, or starting your own school newspaper, please contact Professor Geanne Belton at geanne.belton@baruch.cuny.edu.
