We have finally gotten our website filled out with lots of information about Lafayette County Florida. And now we are looking for Student Intern Reporters and Guest Reporters to write about events, sports, business and general happenings within the county.

Each student intern will be responsible for their assigned area, research their own articles, interview their subjects, take pictures and write their own articles. Each intern will receive credit for their writing and a letter of recommendation at the end of their term of service. We prefer that the students be living in Lafayette County Florida and between the ages of 16 to 18. Those under 18 will need a parent’s signature on the application before being accepted.
