7th annual media relations summer camp for Hamilton community builders June 24 & 26

Volunteers, staff and board members with Hamilton nonprofits, community groups and associations are invited to the 7th annual media relations camp June 24 and 26 at The Hamilton Spectator.

With help from local PR pros, campers will polish, practice and then pitch story ideas to a panel of Spectator editors and reporters. Some of the best pitches from past camps have wound up in the print and online versions of The Spectator.

Campers will also get hands-on crash courses in how to give on-camera interviews, pen letters to the editor and op-eds and use social media to spread the news.

The camp is free as a thank you to community builders who make Hamilton an even better place to call home. Register online by Friday, May 23.

Highlights from the 2013 camp and evaluations from the 22 organizations that took part are posted here.
