Calling all budding Young Reporters!

Written by on 28 July 2016

Get involved in the Young Reporters for the Environment Programme.  

This national┬áeco-journalism competition┬áis open for all 11-18 years old’s living in New Zealand. ┬áIt is an internationally adopted programme that gives New Zealand youth┬áthe opportunity to produce creative and engaging environmental journalism articles, photos and films.

Participants are split in to two categories based on their age:

  1. 11-14
  2. 15-18

There are 3 x categories with a prize for each age group up for grabs in each:  

  1. Photography
  2. Film
  3. Writing

Each participant needs to select an environmental topic and investigate it. They then need to report on the environmental issues surrounding their topic, and propose solutions, by using either video, photography or writing.

A panel of reputable journalists and environmental experts will judge the entries and select the winners. There are lots of great prizes in each category including the latest and coolest electronics, plus an internship for a day in The New Zealand Herald newsroom which will include a tour, question and answer session with senior journalists and the opportunity to shadow different parts of the newsroom operation.  How cool is that?!

Sound fun? It is! ┬áCheck out our great resources, the rules and FAQ’s to learn more.

Entries close Friday 28 October.
