Happy AP Test season! We wish you all the best.
As school gets hectic, be sure to stay on top of your JSR deadlines. If you need extra time on an assignment, be sure to contact us and your editor before the deadline passes. We tend to be pretty forgiving with students who plan ahead!
Speaking of planning ahead, how many of you are planning ahead for summer? A couple of weeks ago, I sent out a message about our Leadership Summer Camp. A few of you responded to say you were interested, and we’re excited about all of you! We still have several slots available, so please let us know if you’d like to come. I’ll be glad to forward the program description and application to any student who would like one.
Finally, another note on how you can get published. When thinking of your topics, peruse old issues of the Korea Daily and our website and see if another student has already produced a similar article. If the answer is “yes,” then think of something else. There are certain topics that may merit more than one article, but for most topics we will only publish one student article. Keep that in mind!
What brings that point to my mind is the volume of Google Glass articles I’ve been receiving lately. Yes, Google Glass is super cool — but we’ve already published an article about it that was featured both online and in print.
The best way to stay on top of what has been published is to like JSR on Facebook. All new website posted are shared via that page! https://www.facebook.com/JStudentReporters
