Putting on a 'Full Court Press'
"Full Court Press," the annual USBWA sportswriting seminar, will take place for the first time in the Walter Byers Auditorium at the NCAA Conference Center and Hall of Champions in Indianapolis.
The session will begin at 9 a.m. on April 1, the Thursday morning of the Final Four weekend.
The 10th anniversary workshop provides opportunities for college and high school students interested in a career in sports journalism to meet leaders in the industry and compete for a $1,000 scholarship. The students will have the chance to enter a writing competition for a scholarship in honor of the late Larry Donald, a former two-time USBWA President and founder and long-time editor of Basketball Times who passed away suddenly in 2000.
At the center of the workshop is a 90-minute panel discussion featuring USBWA president Steve Carp of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, past president and USBWA Hall of Fame member Jim O'Connell of the Associated Press and at-large board member Dana O'Neil of espn.com. The discussion, which will include a question-and-answer session, is expected to include topics such as the state of the job market, navigational skills in a 24/7 digital era and survival tactics to deal with increasingly difficult deadlines.
The seminar is being organized for the first time by the John Curley Center for Sports Journalism at Penn State University. The Center, which was founded in 2003, is directed by past USBWA president Malcolm Moran, the school's inaugural Knight Chair in Sports Journalism and Society. Moran will be the moderator of the panel discussion.
Students will receive assignments to cover events surrounding the men's championship, including press conferences and practices. One student will receive a credential to cover the national championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium on Monday, April 5. Students interested in attending should contact Moran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
