Letter: Hopi High radio, journalism students seek funding for trip

To the editor,

The Hopi High School radio broadcast and journalism clubs are raising money so they can attend the national Journalism Education Association conference in Oregon April 14-18.

The radio club is attempting to raise $14,400 so they can send 10 students and two chaperones to attend the national conference so students can learn more about how they can become empowered though communications.

The trip will cost approximately $1,200 per person for the airfare, hotel, food and other amenities. Hopi High School will match the money that the club raises. The Hopi High School radio club performs the only live remote Native American high school teen talk show in the nation from 1:30-2 p.m. on Thursdays when the radio club members interview teachers, administrators, community members and classmates on KUYI.

KUYI is the Hopi community radio station. The students work closely with KUYI Station Manager Richard Davis and operations manager Davis Maho.

The students attending the national youth radio conference will benefit by meeting students from other radio stations from throughout the country and learning more about radio techniques.

Donation checks should be made out to the Hopi High Radio Club or Hopi High Journalism, P.O.Box 337, Keams Canyon, AZ 86034.

For more information, call (928) 738-5111, extension 241.
