Local teens sponsor newspaper camp

Students from St. Francis and Homestead high schools have joined forces to host a free newspaper summer camp.

The Sunnyvale Youth Newspaper Camp is scheduled 1-4 p.m. July 7-11 at Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church, 728 W. Fremont Ave.

The camp will focus on teaching students entering grades 5-8 to experiment with different styles of newspaper writing and apply those skills when publishing their school newspapers. Organizers will introduce interviewing, investigative reporting, editorial writing, cartooning and formatting. The camp will highlight different news sources available in the community, including the Los Altos Town Crier, the San Jose Mercury News and online news websites.

The deadline to register is Monday.
