Supported for the fourth year by Google, 20 select students will produce content for the ONA13 website before and during the conference under the personal guidance of professional mentors. Students will also get the chance to attend ONA13 programming led by experts in digital journalism, network with attendees and acquire and flex new digital media skills. All expenses — lodging, travel and registration fees — are paid.

Sixteen Student Newsroom mentors with digital skills will guide one to two students before and during the conference, working one on one with them to help develop story ideas and advise coverage production.
