The Press is an integral part of the YMCA MYIG conference. It is comprised on up to 20 students including an Editor in Chief (appointed the previous year), a copy editor, and a video editor. Press students develop and produce daily videos, podcasts, newspapers and social media coverage of important events and hot topics at the conference. They also travel to different program areas throughout the conference and showcase their work. Press is great for students who participate in their school newspaper, yearbook, journalism class, photography club or AV club.
This program area is highly competitive and students must fill out the application below, as well as submit a sample of their work, to be considered for the team (DUE DECEMBER 15TH). Press selection will be made by the student Editors in Chief for each conference. Due to high demand, Press is limited to a maximum of two students per delegation.
