The Devil’s Advocate

Ellenville High School
Ellenville, NY

SchoolAtomic’s flagship student journalism app, Devil’s Advocate, is run by a crew of seven to ten dedicated Ellenville High School student journalists that are passionate about reporting what happens in their school. The kids meet once a month to hash out story ideas, guided by a student editor and two adult advisers who volunteer their time. They post one story for every day that school is in session, ranging from a picture and a couple sentences, to feature-length investigative pieces.
