FRESH FROM THE NATIONAL CONVENTIONS

Y-Press travels to RNC, DNC
September 1, 2012

Earlier this fall, 12 Y-Press reporters and editors traveled to the national conventions: the RNC in Tampa, FL, and the DNC, in Charlotte, NC. Both provided much food for thought -- about the upcoming election, the state of the union and the priorities of young people across the nation.

The teams not only talked with protesters, politicos and pundits but also had credentials for the conventions themselves. With the help of our partner, What Kids Can Do, their observations have been preserved in reporter notebooks and multimedia presentations.

Much thanks and gratitude to What Kids Can Do, a nonprofit devoted to relaying stories of and by youth, and The Indianapolis Star for making these trips possible.
