One hundred and seventy-five teachers will be selected to attend the 2012 Reynolds High School Journalism Institute. Applications should be postmarked by March 1.

Transportation, lodging, meals, materials, tuition and continuing education credits are covered by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
The Institute will take place at five accredited journalism schools:
The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation is a national philanthropic organization founded in 1954 by the late media entrepreneur for whom it is named. Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, it is one of the largest private foundations in the United States.
