Ashburn, Va. (July 7, 2014) – The Viva Loudoun staff is looking for high school students to become the inaugural Viva Loudoun interns for six Loudoun County high schools.
The schools in need of Viva Loudoun interns include: Broad Run, John Champe, Loudoun County, Park View, Potomac Falls and Woodgrove.
This is an incredible opportunity to intern with Loudoun County’s premiere local news and sports website. Viva Loudoun interns gain valuable experience in journalism, as well as learn the business of running a professional news site. Plus, an internship with Viva Loudoun is an incredible asset to add to any college or job resume, and Viva Loudoun will gladly provide letters of reference to any interns.
This position is ideal for high school students interested in journalism and writing, or involved with their school’s newspaper, literary magazine or yearbook. Although Viva Loudoun interns are not required to have any specific knowledge of sports, those with a special interest in sports-writing are highly encouraged to apply. Multiple interns can be utilized for one high school and Viva Loudoun will try to pair interns with an area that best fits their writing interests.
The duties of a Viva Loudoun intern include covering their school’s sports games and events, as well as any school-related activities (ie. special events, club events, other extra-curricular activities). Community related stories may also be assigned if applicable. Interns may also send in articles they submit for their school newspaper. Interns are also welcome to write special interest stories they feel are important to their school as well.
Interns may work remotely at home or at school, but are also welcome to come and learn more about the software and web tools Viva Loudoun uses to run and manage the site.
If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, or have any further questions, please e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interns can begin working as early as this summer, as Viva Loudoun is already hard at work preparing to make the 2014-2015 school year the best on yet.
