Hey everyone! Our media just came back from a 13 day long trip in Nashville, Tennessee and Boston, Massachusetts. This media trip was so so amazing getting to learn so much about the places we went to and of course various media topics. Here are highlights of the 2018 STN trip.
My first highlight is winning first in the Crazy 8’s News Magazine competition. In this competition we are given 8 hours to shoot and edit together a news magazine which is kind of like news magazine. Our topic this year was rock this town. I felt I was given a big responsibility because I got to edit together the final product. On the News Magazine team there was Ty, Evan, Haley, Shayne, Halea, Natalie, Janine, and me. I felt like since we are all seventh graders we worked together really well. Along with editing the final product I got to make a short news story too. I was partners with ty and we did our story on a tileworks place. I know what you’re thinking, what does a tile place have to do with rocking the town. Well we figured since the tiles are like rocks the tiles literally rock the town. This year’s Crazy 8’s is an experience I will never forget.
My second highlight is getting to go on this trip with such amazing, hilarious, wonderful people. Not only are the people in this class great at media work they are funny and fun to be around. I remember so many times where I couldn’t stop laughing so hard. I feel like this year since the class is smaller it is easier to bond. I felt like I got to know each person over the 13 days. Getting to go somewhere totally different from Hawaii like Boston was cool because we got to experience so many different new things together. Everyone on the trip students and chaperones are so amazing.
My third and final highlight of the 2018 STN trip is getting to see snow. One night on the trip in Boston it started to snow very lightly and everyone ran out in the cold with just their pajamas on. That was only the tip of the iceberg. The following morning everyone was super excited to go and play in the freshly fallen snow. We had so much snowball fights as well as many, many snowmen. We were so siked we went out in the snow twice that day. Since we live in a more tropical area it was a fun, rare day I got to spend with my classmates
So those are my highlights of this year’s STN trip! I am so grateful for the trip and I can’t wait for next year’s STN!
