Got any budding journalists in your classroom? Tell them how to submit a report to CNN Student News.

That’s right. All they’ll need is a camera and a good story.

They might even end up on TV!

CNN’s popular iReport project invites students age 13 and older to file a news report, share their opinions, or just give a shout out to a favorite teacher. Videos can be uploaded for immediate viewing, and the best ones may even be selected to appear on CNN Student News (streaming weekdays on, and also available as a podcast).

It’s a great way for any young person interested in a journalism career to get some valuable experience. Not to mention exposure. A featured report on CNN Student News would look mighty impressive on a college admissions essay. So spread the word!

Check out the video below for details, and for more information visit CNN iReport.
