Welcome Greene Team 2018!

Welcome to the home of the Robert W. Greene Summer Institute for High School Journalists!

Our tenth year is off to a great start, with students from high schools on Long Island, New York City and Parkland, Florida. They were accepted into the program because they all have already produced great work for their schools in the spirit of pioneering Newsday investigative reporter and editor Robert W. Greene, a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and a founding faculty member of Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism.

Each Greene Team member in Summer 2018 will work in the School of Journalism Newsroom on breaking news stories that will require them to perform key journalistic tasks on all media platforms including writing news stories, taking photographs, producing, shooting and editing video, conducting an interview, addressing a newsmaker at a press conference, posting text and images to a blog or website and covering a speech. Each student will also work in Stony Brook’s television news studio operating a teleprompter, appearing live in front of a camera at the anchor’s desk or reporting live as an on-air television correspondent.

By the end of our weeklong workshop, each participant will work in a team on various multimedia assignments that will be posted here. Students will be blogging throughout the program also.

We invite you to explore the site to see the fine work the students produce!
