MySpace, NBC seek two citizen journalists
All you have to do is submit a short video piece starting June 26 to MySpace and NBC News’s Decisions ’08 page answering three questions:
- “Why do you vote?”
- “Why are you the best person for this job?”
- “How will you stand out in the crowd and get the scoop no one else can?”
A panel from MySpace and NBC News will narrow the submissions down to five finalists. The final two will be selected by MySpace members starting July 21. The winner will be announced on July 29.
Personally, we’d like to see at least one of the winners come from a non-U.S. region to lend the coverage a more international perspective. Failing that, perhaps someone will step forward to complete the assignment in a chicken costume.
