Featured Project: Local Current Blog College Contributors
The Local Current Blog features the writing and photography of students from across Minnesota through the College Contributors Program. Students build their journalism skills by working with Local Current Blog editors and attending a day of training in music journalism at MPR. Their contributions offer audiences across Minnesota new perspectives on local music, covering campus music news, live events and music scenes from Winona to Duluth to Moorhead. In 2014, more than 190 Local Current Blog posts featured work by 29 student writers and three student photographers, representing a total of 14 different colleges in nine different Minnesota cities.
