30 student reporters. One mission: tell their stories their way on Nov. 18
The competition was fierce! Over 120 students from across Metro Vancouver auditioned for a top spot in the Final 30. They pitched unique and newsworthy story ideas that matter to them, that affect their communities and themselves.
Armed with the latest multimedia technologies the Final 30 are hitting the streets gathering the material they need to have their voices heard.
On Thursday Nov. 18 you'll see and hear these student reporters give it all they've got as a full day of wall-to-wall coverage is unleashed on CBC television, radio, web, and for the first time as part of a special partnership, in the Vancouver Sun.
Real Students, Real Issues, Real News
