Pella — The Iowa Newspaper Foundation has again partnered with the Iowa Association of Business and Industry Foundation’s Business Horizons program to offer an in-depth media experience for Iowa high school students (9-12 graders). The Business Horizons program is a one-of-a-kind, hands-on, action-oriented weeklong summer program for high school students who want to learn about the world of business and what the future holds for them. A special media track has been created in an effort to develop the next generation of Iowa newspaper professionals by sparking students’ understanding of the media industry as a viable career opportunity in Iowa.

The camp will be held July 15-19 on the campus of Central College in Pella. High school students who participate in Business Horizons and then go on to attend Central College will be guaranteed a minimum of $12,000 in Central College scholarship assistance. An option to earn college credit will also be available.

If you are interested in getting involved with the program or know a student who would like to attend, please contact Jennifer Asa at jasa@inanews.com or 515-422-9070.
