The Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association will hold its annual Collegiate Day journalism workshop and awards program this Friday, May 7, at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany.

More than 100 college journalists from around the state are expected to attend the event, which will include four journalism workshops and presentation of awards in the Collegiate Newspaper Contest.

This year's morning workshops are:
  • "Interviewing," by KeizerTimes Publisher Lyndon Zaitz
  • "Social Networking and the Media," by Corvallis Gazette-Times Entertainment Editor Nancy Raskauskas and Oregonian Sports Writer Lindsay Schnell
  • "Open Records/Meetings and Legal/Ethics," by Portland State University Student Publications Adviser Judson Randall and Duane Bosworth, a partner in the Portland law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine
  • "Building a Strong Editorial Page," by Albany Democrat-Herald Editor Hasso Hering
In the afternoon, the student journalists will be recognized for outstanding works of journalism printed in their school publications over the past year. These include writing, editing and photography awards. The top publications will be honored with the General Excellence Award for their staffs.

The annual contest is supported by the ONPA's Oregon Newspapers Foundation. Awards will be presented by Martha Wells, publisher of the Albany Democrat-Herald and immediate past president of ONPA.
