The city of Reykjavík and RÚV channel will invite ten children from 8-10th grade to be the news reporters for the Children´s Cultural Festival in Reykjavík, from 25-30 April. The young reporters will have lively news from the festival´s events. The news will be shown on the Kid's channel on RÚV, on the web www.ruv.is.
RÚV and the Children´s Culture Festival are going to invite the young reporters to participate in a course which will cover the basics in reporting about cultural events and the festival. Experienced reporters will share their experience and teach the young reporters how to write the news, report it, interviewing procedures, reporting on the internet, and technical procedures related to news reporting.
The young reporters will go to the events during the festival and create the news. The goal is to give young people experience in news reporting and the festival will also benefit in having the news reported from a child´s point of view.
