UPDATE: Iron Reporter has been canceled for CMANYC20.
Show everyone here the best reporter at this convention works at your school. For those who always strive to go the extra mile, CMA presents the Iron Reporter competition. This year’s ultimate programming marathon pits the brightest future journalists against each other to see who can tell the most compelling story in America’s quintessential city.
With the help from professional journalists as needed, individual students or small teams will meet a series of deadlines while crafting a story for publication based around the theme “What brought you here? Stories of immigration, personal challenge and transformation”
The contest officially starts Thursday at 9 a.m. with an informational session. Stories are due 24 hours later–Friday at 9 a.m.
Program leaders Hillary Warren and Mike Wagner will be available for a meet and greet Wednesday evening from 5-6 p.m.
Deadline for entry is 10 a.m. Thursday.
Entries will be judged by an impartial panel to recognize Iron Reporters working individually, as a team, and in a variety of media.
