Teen Press is a journalism project developed with three area schools in Winona and La Crosse. Teen Press allows students to gain real life experience and develop writing and communication skills while building self confidence. This program has resulted in dozens of stories and video blogs on musicians associated with MWMF crafted by teenage writers.

Teen Press students from Longfellow Middlie School in La Crosse interviewed musicians connected to our video series MWMF Sessions.
