Social media promotes scholastic journalism awareness (STORIFY)

[/media-credit] The Feather Online is participating in Scholastic Journalism Week, Feb. 22-28. The staff will also participate, follow the Hashtag #SJW2015.

With National Scholastic Journalism Week, sponsored by the Journalism Education Association (JEA), mass media has been seen on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #SJW2015. Throughout the week, students posted on social media in an effect to promote Journalism Education, Feb. 22-28.

The organization encourages student journalists to raise awareness, promoting its significance to the community. The event was geared towards those apart of a educational journalism program, community members, including readers and students, to spread awareness.

National Scholastic Journalism Week was created for the support of the First Amendment which states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Throughout the week, The Feather watched both medias, by creating the hashtag: #FCJW as well as the original #SJW2015. Approximately 100 posts were involved with the hashtag throughout Instagram as well as Twitter.
