communicative_bird and quickwitted_engineer
Congratulations to our two Christmas holiday competition winners. There were lots of very creative entries and a wealth of research had clearly been undertaken, so well done! We enjoyed the entry from communicative_bird which suggested a General Election, cross party agreement AND more businesses suffering in 2019. We also loved the imagination and storytelling shown by quickwitted_engineer who wrote an article they expect to read in August 2019. We'll keep and eye out to see who is closest to the truth. Well done!
CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY COMPETITION:
We want your Burnet News Club brains to stay warm over the holiday, so here's a special edition competition.
Winners will be announced on Friday 4th January, so you have slightly longer to come up with your idea. Good luck!
The world in 2019
Each year, The Economist predicts which news stories will happen in the upcoming year. For this competition, we'd like you to do the same. What do you think will hit the headlines in 2019 and why?
Top tips for winning entries:
- Come up with an original idea - let your curiosity lead your research and keep an open mind
- Write the headline for the story - top journalists need to be be catchy storytellers
- Explain why it might happen - give reasons for the event you predict and remember to be sceptical of your sources
