I just had to share this quick because I thought it was pretty neat.
Amy DeVault, a journalism instructor at Wichita State University, was in Washington, D.C. Saturday. She was there for the annual national student journalism convention (brought to you by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association). There were a lot of other people there too.
I follow her on Twitter, and I noticed a very cool tweet she sent while touring the Newseum, which is “a 250,000-square-foot museum of news” that “offers visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits,” according to the Newseum’s “About Us” page.
Here was the tweet she sent out: “Hutch news is the ks paper of the day outside the newseum in d.c. http://yfrog.com/b6df4ij”
It was sent 1:19 PM Nov 14th, according to the post.
Here is the picture she linked to:
A Kentucky paper was featured next to it.
Every day the Newseum features a different paper, but I still think it is cool that the Hutchinson (Kan.) News was featured and Kansas folks were there to see it.
I’m jealous. I wish I could have been there.
