Ok. This is a big one. Congress is on April recess, and the Washington Post wants to know what members are telling their constituents back home. In an effort to hold public officials accountable, they’re fact checking the Congress kids.
That’s where your kids come in. SNO reached out to WaPo to suggest that we put the word out to the hard-hitting student journalists in the SNO network. And they bit. They’re totally into it, actually, and they’re just as stoked as we are to work student journalists.
So here’s how to get involved: send some kids out to a local town hall meeting or two and have them report on it. WaPo is most interested in audio and video recordings, so students will need to include one in every submission. When they’ve got a report put together, they can submit here. It’s an awesome way to promote civic engagement and journalism, and it’s a total bonus if WaPo wants to use it. Win win win.
Alright, you’ve got your assignment, now get after it; WaPo is eager to hear from the SNO Patrol.
