The News is giving five lucky readers the chance to be part of The News team for a day.
Do you want to be a journalist for a day?
Then The News has the competition for you.
In an attempt to give the community even more input into the newspaper The News is urging locals to apply to write the news for a day.
News editor Kristin Favaloro said the You Write The News competition aimed to give readers an input into the newspaper by pitching and writing stories.
‘‘We also want to give people a better insight into how our community works,’’ Ms Favaloro said.
‘‘Five people will spend the day with our team – that’s everything from our morning news meeting, pitching story ideas, having input into the way we cover issues and attending jobs with journalists and photographers.
‘‘We want the community to know how important their input is to us.’’
People must provide their name, age and say in 100 words or less why they want to be a journalist for the day.
We also ask you provide us with a story idea to write on the day, that News journalists will help you research and write.
Applications close on Tuesday, November 27 and applicants must be available to be at The News for the day on Tuesday, December 4.
Winners receive a six month subscription to The News.
