This year, we’re ALL IN!
MIPA Camp has always had everything you need to prepare for a year on your journalism staff. This summer, we’ve got it all and more… we’re All In! There will still be wide range of focused courses taught by the best instructors, but we’re also making sure that everyone gets involved this week. Whether it’s participating in goofy contests, showing off at the talent show, or being featured in the All-MIPA lip dub (yes, this is happening), we can’t wait to see how you get All In this summer!

Advisers are ALL IN too!
Tuesday, July 31 is Adviser Day. Come visit your students and get a taste of the workshop experience. This is free for advisers. Register here by July 27 to attend, and we’ll follow up with details before the event.

Start an online pledge drive.
The pledge system has closed for 2012. 
If you wanted to collect pledges this year but never got around to it, fear not! The pledge system will reopen in September for folks planning for MIPA2013!

There are people who would like to help send you to journalism camp… you just need to ask. We make it simple for you and your donor. Some folks will be able to get their whole tuition funded just from donations. Send an email, post on Facebook and Twitter, or even write an old-fashioned letter and put a stamp on it! You can write it yourself, or use our sample letter as a template. Just give people this address when you talk to them, and they can go here and donate to your cause:

Thank You, Owosso Argus-Press!

Tom Campbell, publisher of the Owosso Argus-Press, pledged $2,000 in matching funds for students using the pledge system. Due to this generosity, eleven students had up to half their summer workshop tuition covered! This was an amazing opportunity, and we are grateful to the Argus-Press for their generous support.

Go for staff incentives!
We can best plan for the week when we know how many of you all are coming! That’s why we’ve put in place a few incentives to get you and your staff in gear as soon as possible! Take a look, then see if you can be a winner!
