The Amplifier, Montgomery County’s student-led magazine. Last year, came out with two editions: one in January and the other in June. The latter was 100 pages and had writing from students in 14 schools across Montgomery County. This year, our goal is to get involvement from all 26 Montgomery County high schools – including writers, artists, and editors. We would love to get your school involved, so please spread the word of this opportunity amongst your students. Attached is a flier with a QR code that directs students to a form for signing up to be a writer, editor, or artist for the Amplifier.
