Online Reporter Project Auction


Each year, the Pennsylvania Society of News Editors (PSNE) holds an auction at the Pennsylvania Press Conference to support the next year's Online Reporter Project. 


Auctioned items are typically donated by newspapers from across the state and bid on by the attendees at the Pennsylvania Press Conference.  Popular donations in the past have been sporting event tickets, signed memorabilia, hotel packages, art work, gift cards, and area baskets.

The Online Reporter Project is a three day internship for college juniors and seniors enrolled in journalism or communications programs in Pennsylvania. These student interns cover the annual Pennsylvania Press Conference and Keystone Press Awards for a comprehensive online operation, which becomes available to everyone. 


If you wish to donate an item to support this important project, please contact Teresa Shaak, Manager, Foundation Projects, at or (717) 703-3003.
