Mohawk College and the Hamilton Spectator invite nonprofits to 7th annual media relations summer camp

Hamilton nonprofits, community groups and associations are invited to apply to the 7th annual media relations summer camp at the Hamilton Spectator June 24 and 26. The camp is offered free of charge as a thank you to Hamilton community builders. Campers will work with local PR practitioners to polish, practice and then pitch story ideas to a panel of editors and reporters. Campers will also get crash courses on how to give on-camera interviews, spread the word using social media and write op-eds and letters to the editor. The camp is limited to up to 25 organizations, with May 23 as the deadline to apply.
