Press Release writing assignment

For Journalism B

Think of two organizations, activities, clubs, etc. that you are involved in (or very familiar with). This can be a sports team, church group, school club or organization, job, etc.

Write a press release for 2 different organizations/groups based on an upcoming/ongoing event. You must choose two different groups and have two different press releases.

Here are some examples of ideas:

– Coppell boys basketball team prepares for its upcoming area playoff basketball game

– Girls Scouts celebrate 100 years of service

– Upcoming church retreat

– KCBY announces its 2012-2013 staff

– School club fundraiser/community service event

Be sure to include all items, including letterhead. See me for press release examples or search online as companies will have press releases posted to their website.

Here is the press release template: press release

Your two press releases are due at the end of class Friday, Feb. 24.
