The Washington Journalism and Media Conference


The Washington Journalism and Media Conference (WJMC). This one-week, exciting Conference is designed exclusively for high-achieving high school students, and will be held on the campus of George Mason University, just outside Washington, D.C. Summer 2022 dates are from July 10 to 15 or July 17 to 22, 2022.

If you are interested, contact Ms. McHale. I will nominate you so that you can get the information needed to complete your application for the conference. All nominees are asked to provide their GPA, a resume or listing of their activities, and a short essay or writing sample. Students may also submit video or photo essays if these are a better reflection of their abilities.

Please contact Ms. McHale by October 1, 2021.

Should you have any questions or concerns,  call (703) 993-5010 or email Elena Johnson at [email protected] We will keep you up-to-date throughout the year on plans for the 2022 conference.
