Are you interested in the world of broadcast journalism? On March 27, CBC and the Vancouver Sun will feature stories by students on issues that are important to today’s youth for their annual News Day in B.C.
In preparation for this year's News Day, CBC Vancouver is holding journalism workshops for Metro Vancouver students in grades 10 to 12 who are interested in participating in this very unique program. In addition to gaining some valuable tips, students will have the amazing opportunity to meet CBC personalities and find out how to “pitch” a news story from CBC staff.

In 2009, I was one of the lucky students selected as a reporter for News Day. Now completing my final term in BCIT’s Broadcast Journalism Program, the experience ignited the spark in me to learn as much as I can about the industry and opened the doors to a career in media!
So, if you're thinking about a possible career in media and broadcasting I encourage you to sign up for the workshops, and see what it takes to be chosen as one of the 30 students for News Day in B.C. All 30 finalists will receive a $1,000 scholarship for their post-secondary education courtesy of Sylvan Learning!
Workshops take place February 2nd and 3rd at the Main Branch of the Vancouver Public Library. To register go to: http://www.cbc.ca/bc/newsday/Login or register to post comments. All comments have to go through a queue for approval to keep the nasty stuff out, but we'll post yours as soon as we can.
