Local journalism students gather for conference at UWEC

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Local communication and journalism students gathered at UW-Eau Claire Tuesday.

The annual Chippewa Valley School of Communication and Journalism Association Fall Conference was held at the Davies Center on campus Tuesday. Roughly 75 students from more than six middle and high schools attended the event. The theme for this year's conference was ‘What's Your Next Move?’, with the idea of helping students think about next steps.

"CVSJA promotes journalism and communication to the area high school students, so we really just want to get them excited for that,” said Sara Dies, event organizer.

Students were greeted and given a tour of campus and then able to visit student organization booths. Following that, they attended opening ceremonies, workshops and panel discussions that included WEAU’s own Drew Williams.

The goal is to encourage students to join the communications field.
