National Seminar 2020

EWA’s National Seminar is the largest annual gathering of journalists on the education beat.

This multi-day conference is designed to give participants an exclusive opportunity to build the skills, understanding, and inspiration to improve their coverage of education at all levels. We will offer numerous sessions on important education issues, featuring some of the nation’s most important educational policymakers, leaders, researchers and practitioners. We will also provide attendees training on journalism skills and a lengthy list of story ideas.

The conference, tailored primarily to working journalists at independent news outlets, also welcomes other education content providers and communicators. Special features include the presentation of awards that honor the best in education reporting, a track of sessions tailored to communications professionals, and training on digital and data tools and strategies.

Attendance at this important gathering is limited to EWA members who pre-register. EWA membership is free for any working journalist interested in education coverage. Journalist members who wish to attend the 2020 National Seminar can apply for a scholarship to cover registration fees.

An important benefit for communicators who become Supporting Community Members of EWA is the opportunity to attend the National Seminar. Supporting Community Members must register to reserve their slot ahead of time as well.
