Top 5 Moments From MediaNow STL Day 1

JuJu Vieth

A list of the Top 5 Moments from MediaNow STL Day 1:

1. Staff introduction videos: Welcome to camp, everyone!

2. Giveaways: The first four campers to get called up to the front had a bucket of squishy balls from Dot-Press and various candy dumped on their heads. Dot-Press is giving each camper a opportunity for a free years worth subscription to their hosting site. The second giveaway was a competition between three campers to see who could most accurately copy a sentence from the board into a text message.

Just a glimpse of the #medianowparty kicking off #MNstl15. Like the giveaways, love the energy! A video posted by Sarah Nichols (@sarahjnichols) on

3. Post-Dispatch Panel: MediaNow STL was fortunate enough to be visited by six of the Post-Dispatch’s reporters, photographers, and media staff who were active during the events in Ferguson.

It was AMAZING to hear from the Missouri Post Dispatch. #mnstl15 @medianowstl

4. Ice breakers: Many classes had an ice breaker to help the campers get to know each other.
