A partnership between Chevrolet and the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA) has produced a new campaign- #DiscoverTheUnexpected. This campaign allows eight African American journalism students from Howard University to find compelling news stories this summer while driving the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. The partnership is special because the students get journalism experience in big cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, and Detroit, along with mentorship from real newspapers. The car allows them to do it at a high level as it is equipped with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, which will allow the students to stay connected and share their findings.
Two students, Brianna Brown and Mackenzie Marshall, have already found a compelling story. They traveled to Chicago where they found out about a dance school that has been teaching its’ students a new type of ballet. The school only just gained national attention but the instructor has been teaching the style for years. Brianna and Mackenzie got to interview the instructor, meet his dancers, and in the end, they got a valuable journaling experience that will help them on their journeys to becoming real journalists.
Find out more about Brianna and Mackenzie as well as the other students involved in the campaign at HTTP://WWW.NNPA.ORG/DTU.
