For aspiring young writers in the Valley—Bear is partnering with the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism for the annual Young Reporters Workshop! It’s Saturday, Jan. 27 at the school’s TV studios downtown and runs from 10:30–2:30. The free workshop provides the training Young Reporters need to start writing for Bear Essential News plus a pizza lunch! Mark Lodato, assistant dean of the Cronkite School, is giving the keynote address, and former New York Times Bureau Chief for Phoenix, Fernanda Santos, will teach one of the mini-workshops! All new Young Reporters receive their official press pass and reporters kit, and should bring a completed sign-up form, which can be printed from Bear’s website, for a chance to win a fabulous prize! Teachers or parents need to call toll free: 1-866-NEWS KID (1-866-639-7543) to reserve space for attendees. Teachers can bring up to 20 students, but spaces are filling fast.
The monthly Young Reporters Night meeting in Tucson is Thursday, Jan. 18 at Bookmans, 6230 E. Speedway Blvd from 5 p.m. till 6 p.m. If you’ve written a news story, bring in a hard copy closer to 4:30 to go over it with an editor! Fun prizes and a digital tape recorder will be given away.
