Last Chance Update

November 24, 2017

Oh my goodness, everyone! What a perfect week to be thankful for the progress on our Gaylord Media Mondays campaign for Oklahoma Scholastic Media at OU. As of this morning we are 91% funded from 46 donors! We are so grateful to this group of donors.

With just hours left to raise that other nine percent (just a little over $400!), could those who donated help us spread the word by sharing our campaign page? The campaign ends at midnight tonight, Friday Nov. 24.

Thank you so much for your support of scholastic journalism education in Oklahoma. You are making a difference in the lives of many hundreds of students and their teachers. We are thankful for you on this Thanksgiving week!

Week 3 Update

November 14, 2017

Thank you so much to the 28 donors who have helped us raise 40% of our goal for Gaylord College Fall Media Mondays at the University of Oklahoma. We are closing in on the halfway mark!

With 10 days remaining for our campaign, we would appreciate it if you would share the link for our campaign page and encourage others to donate and spread the word via email and social media. Please let others know that their donation directly supports student journalists and the work they do across the state.

Your support means everything to us! Thank you for helping keep scholastic journalism going strong. And remember, strong student journalism means solid future journalists!

Week 2 Update

November 07, 2017

See this photo? This a group of student journalists cheering to start the award ceremony at the most recent Fall Media Monday on Oct. 30, 2017. Many were awarded for their excellent work in writing, photography, videography and design. These are students who are directly impacted by donations to this campaign.

Thank you so much to the 20 donors who have helped us raise 13% of our goal for Gaylord College Fall Media Mondays at the University of Oklahoma. With just a little more than two weeks left for our campaign, we would appreciate it if you would share the link for our campaign page and encourage others to donate and spread the word via email and social media.

Your support means everything to us! Thank you for helping keep scholastic journalism going strong.
