They encourage young writers far and wide to submit their work for consideration for publication in this annually published online journal.

  • Junior Horizons Presentations - 5.4.17

    Juniors set up displays throughout Linn Hall and did a great job of explaining their Horizos site work throughout the year and answering questions. About two dozen sites—schools, healthcare institutions, social service organizations, libraries, and others—were represented, and sophomores also had time to visit with the juniors and learn more before submitting their site requests for next year.
