The Washington Journalism and Media Conference (WJMC) is a unique student leadership conference designed to develop and encourage future leaders in the changing face of media in the 21st century. The Advisory Board, chaired by Newseum senior vice president, Susan Bennett, includes CEO's of media, distinguished journalists and renowned authors and university faculty.

National Youth Correspondents participate in hands-on, experiential learning through decision-making simulations that challenge them to solve problems and explore the creative, practical, and ethical tensions inherent in journalism and media. The experiential portion of the program is complemented by speakers who are well-known leaders in the media community. Presenters include prominent journalists, CEO's of major media outlets, researchers, and recent college graduates successfully entering the field. Last year's conference included Hoda Kotb, Chuck Todd, Ann Kornblut, and Jessica Yellin.

With distinguished faculty, guest speakers, and direct access to elite D.C. practitioners, the Washington Journalism and Media conference offers aspiring journalists an unparalleled experience. The week-long program, held at George Mason University's state-of-the-art campus, encourages and inspires young leaders from across the country who desire a unique experience focused on successful careers in this dynamic industry.
