BBC Young Reporter Competition

The BBC Young Reporter Competition is open until 27 March 2022 for those aged 11-18. It’s an amazing opportunity to produce a report on a story or issue important to you. 

It is a unique chance to tell your story on TV, radio, online or on social media with the help of BBC journalists, producers and programme makers! This year’s theme is ‘Me and My World’.
