NewsTrain kicked off its 10th anniversary year with a great first event in Springfield, Ill. In all, 90 journalists and students attended the workshops.
Freedom Sings performed at a 10th anniversary event at the Old State Capitol State Historic Site. Among the guests were Abe and Mary Todd Lincoln. See photos from this event by clicking here.
Announced during that reception and performance was a NewsTrain Ambassador campaign for 2013.
The campaign hopes to reach NewsTrain alumni and supporters across the United States and Canada.
NewsTrain is still going strong, and this is the year that we hope people can give back.
