New! FCCLA Media Team – Applications Due February 1
Are you interested in social networking, journalism, blogging, video or photography? We’re looking for members and advisors who want to help spread the great news of Missouri FCCLA during our 2010 State Leadership Conference.
What is the FCCLA Media Team?
The Missouri FCCLA Media Team is a team of up to six volunteers who have an interest in technology and social media. They will be updating the official Missouri FCCLA blog, Facebook® page, Twitter® feed, YouTube® channel, and Flickr® account with conference news and photos from their own unique perspectives. The Media Team will provide real-time updates to conference attendees as well as those unable to attend the meeting, such as parents, administrators, and other chapter members.
Who is eligible to apply?
Potential Media Team members must have experience with social media tools such as Facebook®, Twitter®, Flickr® or blogging. Media Team members will also be taking photos and videos, so experience with simple photo editing and movie making tools such as Animoto® or Microsoft Movie Maker is a plus. Media Team members should be good writers – ones that know how to write in a concise, informational, but yet conversational style.
Members - Missouri FCCLA members in their junior or senior year in high school are eligible to apply. Previous attendance at a state leadership conference is not required.
Advisors –Interested Missouri FCCLA advisors are encouraged to apply. It is recommended that these advisors have at least one additional adult chaperone with their group at the conference, so that travel off-site is possible. Adult media team members may be asked to visit off site-locations to report on STAR Events competitions.
What is the commitment?
Those selected as Media Team members will be expected to complete daily assignments by a set deadline schedule. Media Team members will be assigned duties that fit best with their skills and meet the state association needs. All members of the Media Team will report to the Media Team Coordinator. Examples of work include writing blog posts, taking photographs to be used on the blog or in a day in review video, editing photos and videos, and updating the official Missouri social media sites.
In order to be eligible to be a member of the Missouri FCCLA Media Team, complete this form and submit by February 1!
