This space is generally preserved for following crowdfunding journalism campaigns and the journalism those campaigns produce but pause for applause.

Congratulations are in order to JAWS, not the animatronic sea monster, the Journalism and Women Symposium. 

This summer JAWS raised 110 percent of a $12,000 goal to send 10 young women journalists to the 2015 Conference and Mentoring Camp (CAMP).

See the crowdwise.com campaign here.

Speakers at CAMP being held this year in Palm Springs, Calif. include former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, Jezebel founder Anna Holmes and Cindy Royal, whose dialect quiz was the most popular post on nytimes.com in 2013.
