NeXt is looking for a few good journalists! Are you a high school student with a knack for writing, cartooning, photography or web design? Then joining the NeXt crew would be a great opportunity for you.
HOW TO APPLY:
1. Write a letter explaining why you would like to join the NeXt crew, what you think you can offer the section and what you like or don't like about NeXt and how it can be improved. (Correspondents are paid for work that appears in NeXt.)
2. Send a TYPED sample of the kind of writing you'd like to do for NeXt. It can be a news story, a feature story, an opinion piece, or a movie or music review. (No poetry or short stories, please!) If you'd like to be a photographer or cartoonist, send copies of your work. If you're a web wizard and have ideas for a NeXt Web site, send those.
Mail your letter and writing sample along with name, address, phone number, grade and high school you will attend this fall to:
PO Box 100
Buffalo NY 14240. (Eighth graders who will be in high school in September are welcome to apply.)
Any questions, call 849-4076. (Please, no calls from parents.) The deadline is June 30. Writing samples and photos cannot be returned.
