The Herald and Daily What News Schools Journalist of the Year Competition

Daily What News – the online news service for Scottish schools, funded by Education Scotland and created in association with the Herald newspaper.

Last week we launched our annual Schools Journalist competition and we are trying to involve as many teachers and pupils across Scotland as possible.

 We’re looking for pupils aged 16 and under to send us a report about something that’s going on in their school or community. Four finalists will have their work published on our site and the writer of the story that gets the most hits will win a Kindle for their school and a family ticket to Edinburgh Zoo.


The competition’s deadline is midnight on Thursday 22 March. Here is a link to all the details on our site:
