Abstract: Students were to complete a scavenger hunt through photos. I gave a point value to the different picture options. For example, some teachers want the journalism students to complete a task in their classroom for their photo, or some require a photo with an entire sports team. Students are paired in partners, and they are assigned a class day to go out into the school to complete the project. Each student group member must also appear in the photo since it is the selfie project. The students are required to edit their photos and put them together on a poster board to present to the class. A student can easily use their cell phone to take photo with local chain mascots, retail store managers, local representative, at their local post office, etc. Students can build a digital portfolio for free online. They can build a photojournalism website with brief descriptions of their photos
