MCJR Student Showcase

Norfolk State University's Mass Communication and Journalism Department is
organizing the inaugural MCJR Student Showcase Awards.

This event provides undergraduate and graduate students with the chance to showcase their work to a wider audience and initiate the development of their portfolios. This is also an opportunity for students to have their work evaluated by MCJR alumni and local media professionals.
