BBC Young Reporter Competition

If you are aged between 11 to 18 and you are looking for something to do over half-term, you might like to think about entering the BBC Young Reporter Competition!

The BBC is looking for young people who would like to report on a story or issue which is important to their life or the world around them.

The Young Reporter Competition gives young people a unique chance to tell their story on TV, radio, online or on social media with the help of BBC journalists, producers and programme makers.

The most original and interesting stories will be put in front of a panel of presenters, reporters, senior editors and producers from programmes and platforms such as Newsbeat, Newsround, The One Show and BBC Three.

They will choose the most original and powerful stories – which will be made with the winning entrants and will be broadcast by the BBC on either TV, radio, online or social media platforms.

There will be national and regional winners so there are plenty of opportunities for your story to be heard!

The closing date is Saturday 31 October 2020 – you can find out more information here.
