Culture Days and National Broadcast Partner CTV (Bell Media) invited Canadian journalism and media students to participate in a Student Reporter and Media Internship program during the Annual National Congress on Culture in Edmonton, Alberta on May 7 and 8, 2015. Five lucky students participated in this innovative program including a behind-the-scenes guided tour of the CTV Newsroom in Winnipeg and a once-in-lifetime mentoring session with Marci Ien, co-host of CTV's Canada AM.

I feel like I've learned more at the 2015 National Congress on Culture than any course I've ever taken. Being a CTV/Culture Days Student Reporter at #Congress2015 brought me a wealth of experiences in a jam-packed three days. The best part of it all was meeting my news role models, my fellow reporters, and cultural leaders from across the country. It was a whirlwind of intriguing interviews, accessible art, passionate performances, magical music and fresh food. But how do I sum up the whole three days? A tricky task, but I created video journals of my adventures that transpired at the Congress. Relive the experience with me and watch below!
