Wanted: 2020 Ohio FFA State Convention Student Reporters

The 2020 Ohio FFA State Convention is right around the corner and Ohio’s Country Journal and Ohio Ag Net is on the search for outstanding Ohio FFA members to help serve as student reporters for this year’s event.

In our tenth year of the student reporter program, selected FFA members will get the opportunity to help cover the convention and work alongside our news staff, including Matt Reese, Dale Minyo, and Kolt Buchenroth. Ever wonder what it’s like to do our job? This is your chance!

The live coverage of the Ohio FFA Convention will be posted on www.ocj.com and various social media outlets with reporters helping to host news coverage in addition to a couple veteran student reporters.

Students will assist in gathering information, shoot photos and video of newsworthy items and people, share their commentary of what happened in each session, and much more.

To be considered:

  • Applicants must be attending both days of the Ohio FFA State Convention April 30 and May 1, 2020.
  • Submit a video sharing your qualifications and why you should be selected. This video should be no longer than two minutes. Don’t be afraid to show excitement, creativity and enthusiasm!
  • Upload the video to YouTube (or a host site of your choice) and email the link to kolt@ohioagnet.com.
  • All entries must be received by March 27. Those who earn a spot as a student reporter will be notified shortly after.

Search our website for examples of student reporters and their coverage from past years.

Please direct any questions (from potential reporters, parents, advisers) to Kolt Buchenroth at kolt@ohioagnet.com.
