SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - Dakota News Now is preparing to welcome four students for a week-long introduction to television news production.

Beginning Monday, June 6, Dakota News Now will host its sixth annual Media Camp.

The free camp is held with support from the Washington Pavilion.

Students will learn about many aspects of television news, including reporting, writing, video production and advertising.

The camp ends on Friday, June 10.

Students will wrap up their experience by producing their own five-minute newscast, which will air at the end of a Dakota News Now newscast.

The newscast will also be available on DakotaNewsNow.com.

Students will also work with the sales department to develop a sales plan, so they can find an advertiser to sponsor their newscast.

All students participating in the Dakota News Now Media Camp submitted an application and a “demo tape” to show their on-camera skills.

Students were selected based on their course work in school, their audition and their interest in a future career in television.

“We’re excited to host yet another outstanding group of future journalists,” Dakota News Now President and General Manager Jim Berman said. “We’re looking forward to having them join the Dakota News Now team next month.”

Dakota News Now and the Washington Pavilion hosted the first Media Camp in 2015.

The following students will be participating in the Dakota News Now Media Camp:

Rose Brennan, Bishop O’Gorman, Senior

Joshua Maldonado, Washington, Sophomore

Kate Barbush, Lincoln, Junior

Reese Duncan, Lincoln, Junior
