To help ensure the safety of our participants, the normal policy of the Michigan Interscholastic Press Association is that our youth participants may not drive to, from or on campus for the MIPA Summer Journalism Workshop. However, we do not want to preclude any participant from the workshop experience if a parent or guardian is unable to drive them to Michigan State.
If a participant must drive to our summer workshop, we must have a driver permission form on file and the youth participant will be a charged a $10 parking fee. You can access the permission form here. This form must be completed prior to the start of the MIPA Summer Journalism Workshop by the parent/guardian listed as the youth participant’s emergency contact to allow the participant to drive independently to and from our program.
The youth participant will be asked to turn over their car keys to the workshop student life director for the duration of our workshop. Information on where to park will be provided upon check-in.
