First Deadline Fast Approaching for Student News Contest!
I’d like to point out that the first deadline in the Policy Pulse news coverage contest for Missouri students is coming up tomorrow! If you, or another Missouri high school or college student of your acquaintance, is interested in participating, it’s not too late. A $500 monthly cash prize is nothing to sneeze at, especially if you’re a student. Not to mention the chance for an additional $750 grand prize.
The full contest rules are available online. Keep in mind that we’re running this contest for three months, and tomorrow is only the deadline for the first round of entries. So if you can’t make tomorrow’s deadline, don’t despair — you can also enter in April or May. But why not enter in March, April, and May, and increase your chances of success? The rules don’t specify a limit on per-person entries.
We’ve already published some stories of the type that are likely to win — so take a look at them and try to follow suit. Remember that we also accept video and audio entries, and the fact that we’re partnered with the Missouri Broadcasters Association and the Missouri Broadcast Educators Association for this contest means that your coverage may well receive a widespread audience.
So don’t delay. Read all about it and enter today! Or tomorrow! Or next month! You get the idea.
