Know any budding presenters, journalists or reporters aged between 7 and 11? Sky News and WWF are offering them a chance to show off their skills in our brilliant Young Reporter competition.
The competition – part of a fantastic schools project called I Love Amazon Week – invites pupils to write or film a short news report on a topic linked to the Amazon.
Written entries should be no more than 200 words and video entries no longer than two minutes long – the closing date is Friday 28 June 2013. The lucky winner will earn their school a visit from Charlotte Hawkins, Sky News presenter, as well as £500 towards a green project within their school.
Here are a few fun tips on how to create a great news report (or not)...
About the Amazon, and the Young Reporters competition
Home to one in ten of all wild species on Earth, including the iconic jaguar, the Amazon is a unique and irreplaceable part of our natural world.
All of us, people and wildlife, locally and globally, depend on it every day, whether we realise it or not. But a huge amount of the rainforest is being destroyed, which threatens the future of the people, animals and plants that call the Amazon their home.
As the next generation, young people everywhere play a vital role in understanding and protecting this amazing treasure trove of wildlife and biodiversity - and this competition is a fun and engaging way to get them involved.
The initiative is part of Sky Rainforest Rescue - a partnership between Sky and WWF which aims to help save one billion trees in the Amazon rainforest.
