WEST HARTFORD -- Youth Journalism International, a Connecticut nonprofit, has a great opportunity for fans of the hot British boy band One Direction.
Anyone who is 21 or younger may enter by writing, in 250 words or less, why you should be picked to win two luxury skybox tickets for the band’s sold out show Friday, Nov. 30 at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The winning entry will also be published by Youth Journalism International – and the winner will get to write YJI’s official review of the show, too!
To enter, just email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name, age, address and phone number. Put “1D contest entry” in the subject line. Entries must be received by midnight on Sunday, Nov. 18 to qualify. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at www.youthjournalism.org. The prize does not include transportation to the concert.
Thanks to the generosity of the Mohegan Tribal Council and its commitment to young people and a free press, Youth Journalism International also has One Direction sky box tickets available for purchase.
Proceeds benefit Connecticut-based Youth Journalism International, a 501(c)(3) educational public charity that is working to train the next generation of journalists. Most of the ticket price is tax-deductible. Tickets are on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve yours, call (860) 655-8188 or write to email@example.com.
Youth Journalism International’s students’ work has been featured by The Huffington Post, The Mash in Chicago, National Geographic, PBS NewsHour Extra, The Tattoo teen newspaper, Radio Pacifica, Connecticut Public Radio and other news organizations.
