Young Post is holding the first-ever Junior Reporter Awards! It’s going to be a day celebrating all of you who write for us, contribute to our pages, and help us make YP the fantastic publication it is. Mark this on your calendar: Saturday, December 22, noon to 4pm, at Ocean Terminal, TST.
To celebrate your hard work, we’ve organised a fun-packed afternoon of eating (buffet madness!), games and fun aboard Star Cruises’ gigantic cruise liner, the Star Pisces. (Yes, it’s gonna be on a boat!) Think Oscars, but without the tuxes and evening gowns. And, like at the Oscars, some of you have been nominated to receive an award. (Have you checked your e-mail?)
But unlike at the Oscars, you can play a role in deciding the winners in some categories. Your votes will count for 40 per cent of the final tally. Voting has closed.
There are all sorts of categories, such as Junior Reporter of the Year, Most Enthusiastic Junior Reporter, and Best Workshop Report (see below for the nominees). All nominees will get a free ticket to the party, where the winners will be announced.
But they won’t be alone. Everyone’s invited, but here’s the catch: there’s only a limited number of tickets on sale for Young Post’s coolest event of the year, so if you want to score one, read on – quickly!
To get a ticket, head over to the SCMP office on Leighton Road in Causeway Bay (see map). Tickets can be purchased at the reception counter between the hours of 9:30am to 5:30pm on Monday to Friday and 9:30am to 2:30pm on Saturday until December 18th. The cost for an afternoon of schmoozin’ while cruisin’ with fellow readers and the YP team is just HK$50! And don't forget to bring your ID card. The age limit for attendees is 10 to 22.
Dennis will be there too and there’ll be plenty of photo ops with him so what are you waiting for?
*** We've heard from several people about their difficulties to get to our Causeway Bay office during office hours to pick up their tickets so if you really have no chance of getting to the office by Tuesday, 5.30pm, you can reserve your ticket by emailing your name, age, contact number and most importantly, your HKID number to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5.30pm Tuesday night. Then you can get your ticket on the 22nd. Reserving a ticket this way is your guarantee of your attendance at the awards – a place will be reserved for you, and you must turn up.
