2nd Annual Journalism School Hackathon
Feb. 27 – March 1, 2015
MediaShift is producing our second annual Journalism School Hackathon, co-produced and hosted by the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in Phoenix. We’re convening a group of top students, faculty and professionals for the weekend Hackathon, with a real-world mission of creating sustainable media projects that reach underserved populations. Students will have a chance to collaborate on diverse teams of students with faculty and pro facilitators. And they will be able to create media projects in one of three threads: data, gaming or audience engagement.
