Department of Public Information Application

The Press Corps from last year has been renamed


The Print Division component works extremely hard during the conference to produce at least two conference newspapers every day. This paper requires knowledge of Microsoft Word for simple article construction, and knowledge of Adobe In-Design for layout and final mastering of the paper. Department of Public Information members must be able to meet deadlines, work under pressure, and use proper interviewing techniques while working in the Corps. Members should also be able to demonstrate a functional use of correct grammar, syntax and diction, as well as professional journalistic practices in all aspects of their work.

Members will behave in a professional manner for the duration of the conference. The Department of Public Information component has recently undergone several changes, and these changes have resulted in a higher quality production that demands more from the Corps members. Members who are writing will be producing two to three articles for every paper (about six articles per day), and members working on layout will have to work diligently in order to meet the time deadlines to get the papers to print in a timely manner.

The Print Division is a fun component that works to cover world events as well as conference news, and is an excellent alternative to typical debate for those interested in any aspect of journalism who are willing to work during the conference in order to incorporate their creativity into a publication that benefits the entire conference.

Reporters wishing to be involved with the editing and layout aspects of the paper should be able to use Macintosh computers, and those wishing to participate in the paper layout should have a functional knowledge of the Adobe In-Design program. This program is fairly complex and cannot be mastered during the short length of the conference. Prior knowledge is a MUST for editing/layout.
