For the first time in awhile, something big is happening in the world in a place where Youth Journalism International doesn’t have any student writers.
But perhaps we can find a teen can write in English and who wants to tell the world about the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan today.
If anyone knows somebody who might be interested, pass on word about YJI! We are eager for news, pictures or first-person essays from young people who have something to say about the tragedy — especially if they live there.
Youth Journalism International’s annual journalism contest is underway. See www.YouthJournalism.org for details.
