Life Lessons 

What should we bring to a career fair? How about Chapstick and T-shirts?

The point of going to a kid's career fair is obvious: to try to bestow some words of wisdom to the next generation and make children aware of the many career options out there. At a recent career fair at Spokane's Logan Elementary, several media outlets had tables. There was KPBX's Paige Browning, who let kids listen to their voice through a microphone. There were folks from KXLY talking about broadcast journalism and how the camera works.

And from the Inlander, there was me, the art director, and Mike Bookey, our culture editor. We were prepared to talk about how a newspaper actually gets made and what makes for a good cover image while the kids colored a cover of their own. Did we ready kids for a life of hard-hitting journalism? Doubt it. But the prize wheel to give away free Inlander swag — T-shirts and Chapstick — made us the biggest hit in the gymnasium. ♦
