Future Journalist Programs for Students

The Chicago Wolves offer two programs for aspiring journalists: the Future Journalist Media Day and the Writing Chance program.

Future Journalist Media Day

FutureJournalistProgramsThe Chicago Wolves hosted their seventh annual Future Journalists Media Day for high school students during a team practice in December at the Triphahn Community Center and Ice Arena in Hoffman Estates.

Established journalists from the Chicago area discussed their experiences making a career in sports journalism and answered questions from students. Past guest speakers for the event have included CBS-2 Chicago sports anchor and WGN Radio host Jill Carlson, Chicago Tribune reporter Paul LaTour and ESPN 100 Radio host Harry Teinowitz.

In addition to the Q&A with the speakers, the students had the chance to watch practice and interview Wolves coaches and players.

Writing Chance

The Writing Chance program is a unique media-reporting opportunity for promising student writers and photographers. The Wolves invite local high school and college journalists and photographers to experience a game as a member of the media.

The students' skills are expanded as they are granted full media credentials and the assistance of the Wolves media relations department to write and photograph a game for their school newspaper. Students are able to watch the game from the press box and have the opportunity to take part in a postgame interview with Wolves head coach Scott Arniel.

All stories will be posted on the Chicago Wolves website. For more information about the program, please email Camille Colletti at ccolletti@chicagowolves.com.
