So far, our fund to help Mountlake Terrace High School student journalists attend the National High School Journalism Convention in Boston next week is at $500. We are making one last pitch for readers to help — MLTnews is matching all donations dollar for dollar, up to $300.
Because this convention is on the East Coast, expenses are high — with each student needing to come up with about $700 of his or her own money. All donations will go directly to those working on the MTHS national award-winning student-run publication, The Hawkeye.
We are making this commitment because MLTnews is committed to the future of journalism as a fundamental cornerstone of our democracy, You can donate easily online via Paypal — using your Paypal account or a credit card — using this link. You can also mail a check to MLTnews via Teresa Wippel, 23800 74th Ave. W., Edmonds, WA 98026.
