For the 4th consecutive year, the Pac-12 Networks is offering our exclusive “Pac-12 Networks’ Television Production Student Training Program”. Training will be held at Wells Fargo Arena from 11 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Our mission and objective is to inspire and expose our Pac-12 University students to the world of live sports television production with an emphasis on safety, remote production techniques, mobile unit technologies, hands-on operating and educational experience. With our training team and production crews on site closely supervising trainees, the program is designed to help prepare our students to potentially work for the Pac-12 Networks and for a future job in the broadcast business (trainees are not entitled to a job at the conclusion of the training).

It is limited to the first 30 students who apply and if you apply, the Pac-12 Network expects you to attend.

During the training, students will have an opportunity to tour the mobile unit, get hands on with cameras and other equipment, participate in a Q&A session with on-air and production crew members and have a lot of time to network with full-time employees with Pac-12 Networks.

Hackathon at University of Nevada-Reno
February 24-26 Reno, Nevada

Weekend Hackathon Puts Focus on Bots & Chatbots
Can journalism and communications schools help shape the next generation of media entrepreneurs? Many schools have created special “labs” and innovation centers and are running courses aimed at building startups — and a startup mentality. But how can they share knowledge, improve skills and have fun doing it? MediaShift is producing our fourth annual Journalism School Hackathon on the weekend of February 24-26, 2017, co-produced by the Reynolds School of Journalism and Center for Advanced Media Studies at the University of Nevada-Reno. We’re convening a group of top students (graduates and undergraduates), faculty and professionals for the weekend Hackathon, with a real-world mission of creating startups around bots and chatbots. Students will have a chance to collaborate on diverse teams of students with faculty and pro facilitators.

No coding background is needed! The Hackathon is actually more like a Startup Weekend, with the creation of a startup name, business model and pitch deck. However, we will offer some video tutorials for those who want to learn to code chatbots.

Travel Scholarships
Thanks to the Ford Foundation, we are able to offer 11 travel scholarships for up to $500 for students who can’t otherwise afford to get to the Hackathon. Students are chosen according to financial hardship, with an emphasis on helping women and people of color attend.

Apply for a Travel Scholarship! Deadline to apply is January 20, 2017.
