EWA’s National Seminar is the largest annual gathering of journalists on the education beat. This year’s event in Orlando will explore an array of timely topics of interest to journalists from across the country, with a thematic focus on the vital roles that education and journalism play in democratic societies.

This multi-day conference is designed to give participants the skills, understanding, and inspiration to improve their coverage of education at all levels. It also will deliver a lengthy list of story ideas. We will offer numerous sessions on important education issues, as well as on journalism skills.

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.
