Great Trainees understand that every task matters. You don’t get anywhere in life without a little grunt work. Answering phones, scanning articles, going to Costco, and making media drops at 5 AM wearing the Dunkin’ Donuts or NYPD Pizza mascot costumes, are some of the typical “intern” duties. However, you will be groomed to act like a professional. How to write an effective email. How to handle delicate situations. How to be an ambassador for Decibel Blue outside of the Cove. You will be trained in marketing/advertising/public relations. The ins-and-outs of writing press releases, assembling editorial calendars, pitching reporters, helping clients, developing ad campaigns, using social media. And then some. We will constantly challenge you to prove that you belong. We watch how you represent Decibel Blue and we hear how you interact with our clients and friends. We are casual and like to have fun, but this is still a business. We don’t care if you have your Facebook page open, but deadlines better be met. Your tasks are your responsibility. Learn from your mistakes. Better yet, teach the Trainee who just started so they don’t make the same ones. You have to earn that Decibel Blue credential on your resume. We don’t hand it out to just anyone. Treat Decibel Blue like a college course, take it seriously, work hard/have fun, and you will get your credit. Real life experience is precious. We want you to have it here at Decibel Blue.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS

2014 Sports Journalism Institute Internship
College students interested in sports journalism can get specialized training, a paid sports news internship, a scholarship and industry contacts through the 2014 Sports Journalism Institute (SJI).

Applications are due to AAJA by Nov. 8.

The Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE) established the institute to increase racial and gender diversity in the sports departments of America’s newsrooms. APSE formed partnerships with AAJA, the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists to connect the institute’s opportunities with college students aspiring to be sports journalists.

The program combines an intensive week of instruction from top professionals with an eight-week paid internship at a print, digital or electronic media outlet. Class session topics range from ethics to photo editing, to how to keep a running score at a baseball game to copy editing. Upon completion of the program, college students can receive a $500 scholarship.

The 2014 program starts with the training sessions taught by Poynter Institute faculty May 30 to June 7 at the University of Missouri at Columbia, followed by the internships.

Applications must be submitted to AAJA by November 8, 2013. To begin your application, you must login or create a free online account and click on “View Open Competitions” on your home page under “Awards and Competitions.”

Eligibility
Ten student journalists will be selected. Ideally, applicants should be college sophomores or juniors (current seniors will also be considered). Candidates will be selected on the basis of academic achievement, demonstrated interest in sports journalism as a career and excellence on the required essay.

Eligibility is not limited to journalism majors. Applicants do not need to be AAJA members, but must sign up as members if selected.
Travel logistics, housing arrangements and internship placements are made by the institute.
