​Submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor or someone who can describe your writing skill and work ethic. Letters cannot be written by relatives or friends. Teachers can copy and paste here or send to denise.watson@pilotonline.com.
Your answer
Story ideas *
Submit two story ideas for an article or photo/video story. You will pick one to complete during the workshop. Video and photo stories must include a written narrative. Do not include first-person ideas. List possible sources; you don't need specific names at this point but mention, for example, that you would need to interview five teenagers, police officials or a doctor for your report. Also list the type of research, such as statistics, you would need. Focus your ideas. For example, instead of a general story on gun control you could write a story about a specific program or activist who works on the issue. Avoid stories that will require interviews with teachers since they are difficult to reach during the summer. Copy and paste below or email to denise.watson@pilotonline.com.
