Teacher Internships


Heather Nichols

Since 1993, more than 100 journalism teachers from around the state have taken part in a four-week internship
program that pairs advisers with their local daily newspapers or broadcast outlets. The IHSPA would like to invite you to consider
this highly successful and rewarding program.

Interning at 18 Indiana newspapers (and WRTV Channel 6) since the program started, Indiana teachers
have worked the copy desk, written news and feature stories under deadline pressure, taken photos and
worked in the darkroom, participated in page design and helped plan broadcast news programs.

If you feel working with a professional newspaper would enhance your own teaching and advising, please
consider applying for a paid internship this summer. The Summer Internship Application 2015 is available here and all materials should be returned to Diana Hadley by May 15, 2015.

For an “up close and personal” account of the program, check out Heather Nichols’ blog from her internship in 2012 at the Times-Mail in Bedford. Heather, publications adviser at Paoli High School, admitted she needed some “rejuvenation” after the school year and this summer experience was the perfect opportunity to gain valuable experience and have some fun. If you have questions about the internship program, contact Diana Hadley or Dennis Cripe at the addresses below.
