CTTeens is a group of high school students from across the state dedicated to reporting interesting news and stories while encouraging others to submit creative or journalistic works.
Cindy Simoneau, the chair of the Journalism Department at Southern Connecticut State University, started the high school program in 1999 at the Connecticut Post in Bridgeport, where she was the assistant managing editor and later consulting editor. The project continued for many years in print and online at the Post and recently moved to Southern.
CTTeens is the only monthly journalism program in the state dedicated to high school journalism.
CTTeens meets monthly on a Saturday morning at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven, Conn. For details about the next meeting, contact Cindy Simoneau here.
