Accuracy and Speed

 

Find a newsworthy story to report on objectively. You can be producing it for any media outlet. Post to your site and tweet out.

  • Write a 250 word story using aggregated stories and sources. Do not plagiarize though. Example: The Week
  • Must have at least one picture (credited), one embedded tweet OR video, and one written quote (hyperlink to the story from where the quote came from). Example: “Blah, Blah, Blah,” Chiara said, as reported by the Hartford Courant.
  • (BONUS — 2 Points) Create one multimedia component to go with it. Example: infographic, audio story, or a slideshow.
