The Young Journalists Program for Fourth and Fifth graders is an introduction to plain old-fashioned journalism and those who have left a lasting mark on the profession.

By reading biographies of such journalists as Walter Lippman, E. B. White, Thomas Wolfe and Hunter Thompson the Young Authors not only gain an understanding of journalism’s history but build a rich and expansive vocabulary.
