Broadcasting Workshop

June 16 - June 20, 2013

The Illinois Broadcasters Foundation and the Department of Communication at Bradley University announces the Broadcasting Workshop which will be held June 16 - 20, 2013.  Now in its seventeenth exciting year, this prestigious expenses-paid workshop introduces the best Illinois high-school juniors and seniors to the outstanding career opportunities in television, radio, and digital communications.  The goal is to recruit, develop, and inspire the next generation of broadcasting professionals drawn from the rich multicultural spectrum of Americans in the Twenty-First Century. 

The five-day expenses-paid workshop will be held in the state-of-the-art Caterpillar Global Communications Center on the campus of Bradley University in Peoria.  The curriculum includes hands-on experience with the most advanced industry-standard technology.  Workshop students study with Emmy Award winning broadcasting professionals from the leading stations and university programs in our state.

All students will be housed in a Bradley residence hall with supervision.  All the costs for the workshop (housing, meals, supplies, awards banquet, and entertainment) are underwritten by scholarships from Bradley University and the Illinois Broadcasters Foundation.  The only cost to the students will be a $50.00 registration fee and any travel or incidental expenses they may incur.  Enrollment is limited to 24 students and acceptance is competitive. 

Applicants should be juniors or seniors in the Fall of 2013. Please contact the IBA Workshop Directors, Dr. Bob Jacobs or Joan Wilhelm, 309-677-3707, for additional information.
