WORLD TEENAGE REPORTING Project - COVID-19
WHAT IT IS
A global collaboration producing three sets of stories by teenage reporters linked to newsrooms around the world about what their cohorts are doing to help during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In part, the aim has been to combat what seems to be the prevailing images of teenagers these days a problem: careless beach frolickers who bring the virus home, as couch-sitters who just complain about their boredom or a group that is identified by loss of important adolescent milestones.
TIME FRAME: SPRING-SUMMER 2020
WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
Through our prize and international projects, Global Youth & News Media encourages and facilitates news media work that serves, supports and both attracts and learns from young audiences. This project perfectly fits that mission by amplifying teenage voices about their positive role during a major, global phenomenon.
