Thank you to everyone who entered the competition this week - it was great to see how many of you might like to work in journalism in future.
The winners this time are...
polite_eagle of Lyons Hall Primary School E in the United Kingdom,
noble_grapefruit of Elite Scholars Academy A in the United States of America
and amicable_independence of Scoris International School in Uganda
It’s time to start working on your standpoints! And to make sure they are judged fairly once you’ve submitted them, we’ve asked some top experts from The Economist to help. Each standpoint judge has a different area of expertise: Henry Tricks is a fantastic writer, Harriet Shawcross is a whizz at making films and John Prideaux is awesome at audio.
This got us thinking. What area of journalism might suit you best?
This week’s competition comes in two easy steps.
STEP ONE: work through the quiz below to find out which type of journalism you might prefer based on which skills come most naturally to you
STEP TWO: Let us know your result in the comments! You should say whether you agree or disagree with the result and why. Would you like to have a job in news one day? Why or why not?
You could phrase your answer like this: “In the quiz, I got XXX. I agree/disagree with the result because… . I would/would not like to work in news in future because…”
The deadline for entries is Friday 2nd December. Good luck!
