GREAT 2012 GIFT session!

13 Aug

Wow!  More than 200 people attended the 2012 Great Ideas for Teachers (GIFT) session at the AEJMC Conference in Chicago on Thursday, August 9.

Below are some pictures from GIFT and the GIFT poster session.

Congratulations to CAROL SCHWALBE, of the University of Arizona, who received a $100 check and a plaque as the TOP GIFT RECIPIENT of 2012!  You can obtain a copy of Carol’s GIFT submission and those of the other 24 GIFT Finalists by sending a $5 check, made payable to Community College Journalism Association, c/o John Kerezy, Cuyahoga Community College, 11000 W. Pleasant Valley Road, Parma, OH 44130.

GIFT is one of the leading events at the AEJMC Conference, as it is a “double blind” competition with winners chosen from a panel of peer college journalism professors.

Watch later this year for details about the 2013 GIFT, which will be in Washington DC.
