STLP - News Crew Guide

One way that schools keep the school in the know is from a daily, weekly or monthly newscast service. 

Describe the process you utilize to get the news show done on time.

What the STLP Coordinator/Coach/Teacher should do:

  • Share the rubric with students

  • Determine which student team should apply for this category

  • Gather the information needed to post the process of how the team produces a news show

  • Check for any copyright issues

    What the students should do:

  • Review the rubric

  • Decide the process used in making the news show

  • The school news team creates up to a 60 sec. PSA on the process of making the school news

  • Team will set up a presentation board display and explain the news program at the school

  • Team will be interviewed by judges

  • The team will bring the PSA to the interview


Judges and others visiting the table look for:


There are no issues with copyright, all music is credited properly


The PSA explains team roles, organization and collaboration; up to 60 seconds in length


Process for gathering ideas and producing the news are included


Board content has examples of news team in action; Display set up identifies news team and reflects/supports team’s presentation.
