SAN DIEGO–Lincoln High School will host a community reception to
unveil the results of a pilot project that supports student achievement in
online journalism and media arts, and empowers Lincoln students, alumni and neighbors with digital technology and training to share their own stories
The reception will be held on Thursday, January 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Performing Arts Theatre at Lincoln High, 4777 Imperial Avenue, San Diego. This event is free and open to the public.
Funded by a grant from The San Diego Foundation, the pilot Lincoln High
School Producers Project has created four programs:
(1) Teen Producers, a film collection of narratives, interviews and
reflections from the community;
(2) Doc Your Block, student stories about their surrounding community
(3) Echoes, alumni reflections on how Lincoln impacted their lives
(4) Voices of Lincoln, the official newspaper of Lincoln, ³The Buzz², in new
In addition, mentoring relationships were established between Lincoln High
School and voiceofsandiego.org, Media Arts Center San Diego, and the San
Diego Association of Black Journalists. These relationships enabled the
students to strengthen their production and journalism skills.
The Lincoln High School Producers Project is a part of The San Diego
Foundation¹s Regional Information Initiative, a multi-year initiative
launched in partnership with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation that seeks to better inform and engage the region¹s diverse communities through innovative use of digital media. Non-profit partners include the
