A native of Lusk, Wyo., Langston heard about the open position during her news writing class at BHSU. After applying, she was chosen as one of three finalists for South Dakota. In late November, Langston’s video submission covered “Green Day,” the celebration of President Kay Schallenkamp’s support for the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment. The video secured her spot as the state’s only Citizen Journalist. MTV will provide Langston with a video camera, laptop, and video editing software. Langston will use these materials to create videos to document the upcoming presidential election from South Dakota.
Each week, Langston will post a new video on her page at think.mtv.com. Any outstanding videos will make their debut on television. Her stories may also be picked up by the Associated Press or the MTV show “Choose or Lose.” Langston hopes this opportunity will sharpen her video editing skills and help her become a broadcast journalist.
