With spirits high from the day before, Feather staffers enter the second day at the CSPA convention with a bright perspective, March 15. Not only did The Feather engage with other students throughout the five sessions offered today, but they also taught two sessions.
After completing the majority of touring for the week, Feather staffers and advisers hopped on the NY metro and hurried down to Columbia University to attend the first day of the 94th annual Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Convention, March 14. The Feather has attended the spring CSPA conference since 1998 and has earned five CSPA Gold Crown awards in a row. Students from across the nation attend to hear from a variety of speakers with real-world experience in print publications, online newspapers, magazines, yearbooks, photography and videography. Feather adviser Kori Friesen taught the class, Photojournalism: Your Image as a Hook, during the first session time from 10 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. Over 85 students and advisers attended to gather various bits of information regarding photography. Margaret Sorrows, a speaker at CSPA, worked 36 years as a teacher/advisor and was the 2014 JEA Yearbook Adviser of the Year. She spoke about The Art of Storytelling and how it affects today’s society. “I’m interested in storytelling because you’re creating a history of our country,” Sorrows said. “Whatever time that you’re telling stories of is apart of the history of our country and that’s very important to me. We can also learn from each other through storytelling. It is how we are going to understand and learn from each other and to make the world a better place.”
