Opportunity for Students with GladezGazette!

Published: May 4th, 2016

GladezGazette is a new online newspaper that is currently under construction.  They are seeking journalism students that have an interest in being a part of a new online newspaper from the ground up!
Some background:
Gladez Gazette started off as a children’s project (the creator is achildren’s author, Google ‘The Jolly Shop’ as reference if you like) has taken on a life of its own. While writing a children’s adventure she realized that the habitat loss in the Everglades is so dire and on such a large scale that it will not all fit into a children’s book. With that she created www.GladezGazette.com where our youths can get involved and STAY engaged by posting their experiences in the Everglades (via field trips, etc) or any research they have done, as well as photos and videos they may have taken. From that idea it has only blossomed further getting journalism majors might involved as well. The more people involved the greater impact they can have in turning this crisis around and helping restore the Everglades.
The author has built an alliance with some of the Miccosukee tribesman that have been very welcoming and hospitable as they appreciate my concern with this, offering field trips to take journalists, educators, and authors and educate us on the dire straights that this beautiful ecosystem is in. If you are a student that may be interested in doing a piece on this and having your story published in wwwGladezGazette.com , this might be a great opportunity. Several boat tour companies have offered to take groups out this month, so please contact Sabin Johnson as soon as possible if you are interested.
