There will be publishing opportunities with participating media and event partners.

Beginning in September, JRNOLA in partnership with the New Orleans Recreation Department at the Lyons Center in uptown New Orleans will be taking on new students for the fall semester.

Walmart Media Relations is in the process of their back-to-school efforts, and is working to identify young people who are giving back to their communities.

They’re looking for students that have made a real difference, signifying them as “Everyday Heroes.” For example, in another city, there was an elementary school student that held a lemonade stand to help buy school supplies for other students. Once a student is identified, Wal Mart will surprise him/her with school gear for the school year in front of local media.
