What Are You Doing New This Year

Downtown MayoWhat are you doing new this year? Well, we have moved our website to a new hosting account which we hope will be faster and more reliable. We are still looking to have a couple of student intern reporters to help out with posting new upcoming events as well as posting reviews of past events. We will be pushing the “For Sale” section of the website more this coming year and hope you will participate in the discussions, sending us information about your business, church and school upcoming events. And finally, we can always use Guest Reporters as well. Guest Reporters can just post one article or as many as they want. We just need about 400 to 1000 words and a couple of pictures to post.

Student Reporters and Business Websites

MayoFLA05062013 (32)LOOKING FOR STUDENT INTERN AND GUEST REPORTERS

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. Each reporter needs access to a computer, the internet, a digital camera (or decent camera cellphone) and love to write. The interns will only have to post one article a week each as well as do their own editing, arrange the pictures on the post, updated our pages when necessary and promote our website and the articles to their friends and family.
