December was a busy month! Sideline Pass joined forces with the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation to launch a Junior Journalism program! Our junior writers and photographers enjoyed the unique opportunity of covering Media Day for the R & L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, with the help of some of the most prestigious professional journalists and photographers in the Greater New Orleans area! Each junior journalist teamed up with one of these professional mentors to photograph and/or interview the players and coaches participating in the R & L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, which featured the ULL Ragin’ Cajuns versus the Golden Eagles of USM. The Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation then featured the work of every junior journalist on its website. Fabulous work ladies!
