Student Heritage Reporter Challenge (deadline for submissions is July 31, 2020)

Our thanks to VOCM for partnering on this project. 

Open to K-12 students in Newfoundland and Labrador (2019-2020 school year).

  • Send us a short video (2-3 minutes) of you reporting from a heritage place in your community. Tell us why this place is special to you.
  • You can record your interview on your smartphone or digital device, and email it to andrea@heritagenl.ca. If it is a large file, you can use the free www.wetransfer.com website to send it to the same email address, or post it on YouTube and send us the link.
  • We’ll send you a consent form to complete. 
  • That’s it! Easy peasy!
  • We will share your report on our Facebook page. And your school could win a set of Heritage NL books for its library.
  • Some reports will be featured on VOCM Radio. One lucky student will get to meet a VOCM reporter. Regional prizes of VOCM swag are also up for grabs.
