Amplify Utah, The Salt Lake Tribune and Salt Lake Community College partnered in 2020 to launch our inaugural project aimed at bridging the gap between young people and news media organizations across the state. The project was a success, with nearly 20 students publishing more than two dozen (paid) stories in the Salt Lake Tribune and other local media.
This playbook is a resource for those across the country interested in replicating, adapting or building upon the project in their own communities. (In Amplify Utah’s case, both the project and this playbook were made possible through the Google News Initiative.) The playbook is organized as a manual outlining how to create and execute a similar program and includes a toolkit of how-to pages and fact sheets. Toolkit pages are labeled as such and indicated by an Amplify Utah icon for easy reference.
