Good News Broadcast Competition

Competition Brief

We need your help! We’re sick and tired of hearing bad news and I’m sure your are too. We are looking for young people ages 11 – 14 to find and report on good news and inspirational stories similar to the successful series of videos “Some Good News” by John Krasinski.

We’d love to hear your stories about yourself, your family or people, remote learning, or even animals you know. We want the stories to be positive, to inspire, be funny or of course all three!

Your story has to be 30 – 60 seconds in length, can take any form – animation, broadcast, live action. It’s up to you.
