Kaleb Reyes Clyde, Winslow High School, Winslow, Arizona

Kaleb Reyes Clyde, Winslow High School, Winslow, Arizona
Helen Delgado, North Salinas High School, Salinas, California

Helen Delgado, North Salinas High School, Salinas, California
Katie Leslie, Holy Spirit Preparatory School, Atlanta, Georgia

Katie Leslie, Holy Spirit Preparatory School, Atlanta, Georgia
Teagan Sebba, Fort Collins High School, Fort Collins, Colorado

“Thank you so much for a Newsroom by the Bay experience that I will never forget! During my 10 days at Stanford, I learned so much about journalism, people and myself. I learned that the friends and connections you make now will impact your life forever, and I’m lucky to have made such great friends and connections at NBTB this year.”

Teagan Sebba, Fort Collins High School, Fort Collins, Colorado
Telmo DeMorais, St. Benedict’s Preparatory School, Newark

“On behalf of the other guys and myself, I’d like to thank you both for an amazing week. Personally, I can say that here, I’ve found many of the answers I’ve been looking for. Our website barely had any views, and I never knew why. Coming to NBTB and meeting people who were super-energetic and would always challenge my way of thinking about how journalism works today was amazing.”
