(S.D.)-Lack Of Funding Cancels SD Journalism Workshop

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A yearly workshop at the Crazy Horse Memorial to promote diversity and encourage Native Americans to enter the journalism field has been canceled this spring because of a lack of funding.
The Crazy Horse Journalism Workshop will be cancelled this spring and a committee will convene in the summer to discuss the program's future.
     The South Dakota Newspaper Association puts on the event with funding help from the Freedom Forum Diversity Institute.
     Freedom Forum Diversity Institute president Jack Marsh says fundraising has become a challenge. He says the organization was not able to raise all the money necessary to cover the expenses for the students and teachers.
     Marsh says the budget for the workshop was expected to be about $35,000.
