    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    Remembering the victims of 9/11

    The 9/11 Student Journalism Project


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     terekpierce1 says, 'The five students interviewed were not the only students involved in the course, but their experiences told the story of each student in the course. They explained how the stories were hard to deal with originally when speaking to these children of 9/11 victims. It was described as very difficult to handle from a journalistic standpoint for almost every student, but they were able to produce stories for their course and the New Jersey Press Association, upon which the stories will be published in New Jersey newspapers after being edited by the publication's respective editors.' CNN produced a story that talks about the 9/11 project, as well as a behind-the-scenes piece by writer Ann O'Neill for CNN iReport boot camp.

    In honor of the 10th anniversary of the attacks that took place on September 11, 2001, Rutgers student journalists worked in a cooperative effort between Rutgers University, the New Jersey Press Foundation, and the Garden State Scholastic Press Association to produce stories about the children of victims of 9/11 ten years later. Terek Pierce was able to talk to the journalists about their experience.
