DHS journalism students auctioning services

Journalism students at Davis High School have come up with an innovative way to use the skills they’ve mastered to make money for the program: auctioning those skills off to bidders.

Students are auctioning off everything from graphic design services to writing, proofreading, photography, website design and more, all with the goal of offsetting the costs of running the student newspaper and sending students to a journalism convention in Washington D.C. in the fall. Services range in price from $30 to $100.

“I truly believe our students possess professional skills that can be of value to businesses and individuals,” teacher Kelly Wilkerson said. “All money raised will go to the HUB account to purchase multimedia equipment, pay for newspaper printing costs and pay for convention scholarships.”

The online auction runs through Thursday, May 22, at http://www.bluedevilhub.com/hubauctions.

To bid, visit the website and click bid on the service desired. Students will respond as soon as possible but they are only allowed to contact bidders by phone or in the classroom with a teacher present. Once the service has been arranged, students will complete the project and satisfied bidders can make a donation to the HUB.

The auction doubles as the final project for this year’s students.

Services available include graphic design, including brochures, fliers and logos; website work including setting up WordPress websites; photography for real estate, portraits and photo calendars; writing, editing and proofreading; video and audio; and business help, including constructing Excel spreadsheets and making mailing lists and labels.
