Journalists in school

Q and ABulgaria, June 6 – 11 2016

On June 6th kicked off the “Journalists in school” initiative, which is a part of the activities of the “Valya Krushkina” Fund – at the Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation (WCIF). BFPA has actively supported the Fund since its establishing in 2012. Students from 16 schools in 13 Bulgarian cities will meet face to face with famous Bulgarian journalists who are connected with the “Valya Krushkina – journalism for the people” award – award winners, jury members and members of the “Valya Krushkina Fund” Public Council. 
“Journalists in school” is a meeting, at which the students ask and the journalists answer.
“What is it like being a journalist in Bulgaria”?
“Who warrants the objectivity of our media”?
“How does one become a journalist?””
“What is investigative journalism?” and a lot more questions that are of interest for the adolescents.

The initiative is implemented for a third consecutive year and its aim is to provoke the interest of students towards the profession of the journalist, to stimulate them in the forming of a civic position and to popularize the journalism aimed at protecting people’s rights and interests. Partners of the initiative are Bulgarian National Television, BTV, Nova TV, Bulgarian National Radio, Mediapool.bg and Offnews.bg
General Toshevo, Sofia, Karlovo, Pernik, Kurdjali, Sliven, Veliko Turnovo, Etropole, Burgas, Lovech, Sandanski, Zlatitza and Tryavna are the destinations which will be visited by the journalists. The meetings will take place from June 6 2016 to June 11 2016, days before Valya Krushkina Day – June 21st.
