A heads up to those who revel in archery and have a passion for journalism: The Ogden Archery World Cup Organizing Committee is looking for a journalism student—ages sixteen to thirty—to cover the third stage of the Archery World Cup this June in Ogden.
Lest you believe that the Archery World Cup is a small-time affair, it marks the final Olympic qualification tournament prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The Ogden stage will be held after the first and second rounds in Shanghai and Antalya (Turkey), respectively.
Should this pique your interest, here are a few things you need to know. In addition to the age requirement, prospective journalists must be available June 17–25, able to work with high-def cameras, do their own editing and arrange interviews. To apply, a three- to five-minute video, as well as an essay, must be submitted by April 30.
Sounds pretty daunting, doesn’t it? However, not only will you be able to hone your journalism skills and spectate a world event, you’ll get the chance to cover the World Cup Finals in Tokyo in September—if your work as a “fan reporter” is deemed the best.
Be sure to visit the Ogden World Cup website at ogdenwc.com to get the details in full.
Even if you’re not looking to become the next journalistic phenom, the World Cup will be excellent to watch—and let’s be real: Who knew we even had a World Cup event right in our backyard? Events will be held June 18–24 at the Golden Spike Event Center (1000 N. 1200 West, Ogden) and Lindquist Field (2330 Lincoln Avenue, Ogden).
