The Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists is offering two (2) $1,000 scholarships to Philadelphia area college students pursuing a career in journalism / multimedia arts, one (1) $500 scholarship to a Philadelphia area community college student enrolled full-time in a two year accredited college and one (1) $500 scholarship towards the purchase of equipment or software to a Philadelphia area high school student actively exploring their interest in the field of journalism or multimedia arts. College students are to answer any one of the three questions below: How do you cover a story that has two or more distinct perspectives or viewpoints? Why is it important to include multiple perspectives/viewpoints/sides of a story? What do you consider in order to write a balanced story? Write a story to give an example. Next, BREAKING NEWS: A terrible accident has injured 12 students on a school bus, the mayor is arrested in city hall for accepting bribes, and a 6th woman has mysteriously disappeared in the city in less than 2 weeks. You are producing the 5pm newscast with only minutes left in the show and can only get one of these stories in. Which one do you chose and why? What do you consider when deciding? Third, in the aftermath of COVID-19 you are asked to write an editorial on lessons learned for the African American community. Based on your experience or observations during the pandemic, write an editorial for a nationally syndicated publication. For the high school students: an essay with no less than 500 words for the question, “what does the term journalistic ethics” mean to you? Application link will be available to this site for 2021 submissions: https://pabj.submittable.com/submit
