Calling all kids! Here's your chance to become a News-Sentinel Komets reporter for a game. Twenty students will be selected to serve as Komets student reporters. That means they come sit next to me for a game, go home and write about what they experienced and then their story appears in The News-Sentinel. Chose students receive game tickets, press box access for themselves and their families, a special press kit and recognition on the scoreboard and over the public address system during the game. Plus, I make sure everyone has fun. We generally like to keep it between the ages of 10 and 18. If you are college-aged, and wish to consider this as a possible career, we can also do a job shadow if you'd like.
To apply for the contest, send student's name, phone number, address, grade, school and age to NIE (which is newspaper in education)

If we end up with more than 20 kids wanting to do this, we'll figure something out. We try to stay away from school nights or holidays as much as possible.
