Each student is asked to submit two personal letters of recommendation and write a short essay explaining why he/she wants to attend the Summer Workshop.

All students will receive the opportunity to meet with and talk with local DJs and on-air talent, visit a radio and television station, get “on mic” and “on camera” along with exposure to the basics of what it takes to work at a broadcast facility.
