IJEA’S GALLERY OF LINKS — A RESOURCE FOR YOU AND YOUR STUDENTS

Are you interested in seeing other schools’ publications? Take a look at the links below to see the great work that Illinois student journalists are doing each day! And then send us your own links!

OUR GOAL

So far, we have compiled links to more than 150 Illinois high school publications. Our goal is to shine a well-deserved spotlight on the work of Illinois students and advisers. We want to include links to as many of your publications as possible.


HOW YOU CAN HELP

If you’d like to add your publication to the list, please email your web address to IJEA board member Amanda Bright ([email protected]) or to website manager and former IJEA president Dave Porreca ([email protected]).

The vast majority of publications that we have linked to are online news sites. If you are a yearbook adviser and your staff has its own site, let us know! We want to be as inclusive as possible. And that means broadcasters, too. Send us those links! We’ll be glad to link to your Facebook page or Twitter account, if you have no other online presence.


HOW WE CAN HELP

What if you have a print-only publication? First, you really should be on social media — Twitter, definitely. You can set up a free Twitter account easily, and you don’t need your own online website for that.

But it doesn’t matter what social media platform you use — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, whatever — as long as you go social. Really, you’re shortchanging yourself and your students educationally if you don’t take the plunge. This is where journalism is — not where it’s heading, but where it is. Once you have a social media account for your print publication, send the link to us.

What if you have a recalcitrant administration that refuses to allow you to be on social media? Think about creating a PDF archive for your publication on your school’s website. Or, better yet, start a free account with the digital publishing platform ISSUU and display your publication that way. Then send us the links!

If you’re not sure where or how to start, contact Amanda or Dave at the email addresses above. We want to help spread the word about you and your students!


ADVICE FOR WHEN YOU VISIT A SITE

Although some Illinois student publications have moved exclusively online, many still publish print issues in addition to maintaining a website. So once you arrive at a site, be sure to look around for links to that publication’s print issues. And don’t forget to check out the site’s social media accounts as well!

 


 


LINKS GALLERY: ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT PUBLICATIONS

The following list is arranged in alphabetical order based on hometown. If more than one school is located in the same town, those schools are listed alphabetically according to school name. If a school is named after a person, that person’s last name is used to determine alphabetical order. Click the thumbnails to see a screenshot of each publication!
