About Insider

Mash_Logo_Broadcast Solid

Mash Insider is a digital platform and user-generated content initiative that provides local coverage of Chicagoland high schools. From the big game on Friday to opening night of the school play, we’ll give you the scoop on what’s going on in the halls of Chicago’s high schools.

In the changing culture of journalism, Chicago Tribune is a true online-first newsroom, meaning the focus is to create stellar and timely digital content and trust that the paper will come from that. At The Mash, we’re eager to educate aspiring journalists on the importance of digital news and how to utilize its power to make their voices heard. Insider is powered by high school journalists who are passionate about writing and telling the stories taking place in their communities.

By giving students this platform, The Mash and Chicago Tribune hope to inspire future journalists and help make their voices heard. We are always open to working with new schools and new students, so apply today if this sounds like the place for you!
