Roosevelt journalism students produce glossy magazine!

12 05 2010

One of Prime Movers Media’s target high school media program has recently published a 28 page magazine/program regarding the DCIAA football championship. Dr. Maurice Butler’s journalism class at Roosevelt High School put together the slick, image-filled magazine that focused on all the major football programs that are part of DCIAA. His class will now move on to publishing several editions of their school newspaper and a larger magazine, “Around the DCIAA” that covers many more DCIAA athletics.

Prime Movers Media helped Dr.Butler’s program acquire a grant from the American Society of News Editors that helped them to buy cameras, acquire some training, and pay for some of the printing costs.

Regarding the magazine, Dr. Butler reports: The city athletic director and the championship committee were so pleased with the product that they are still talking about it. They told us that it was the best guide that they have ever had. We were informed that people have been calling the athletic office everyday trying to get copies of the guide. We have been contacted by other organizations to produce guides for them.”
