This is one of the students’ highlights of the annual newspaper project with the Rhein Neckar Zeitung and the Stadtsparkasse Heidelberg called “Schüler machen Zeitung.”
But apart from the fun parts of the annual newspaper project there is quite a lot of work to do:
Over a period of six weeks the RNZ sends daily newspapers for the entire class and the students will learn about the structure of a newspaper, about the different types of articles, about a good writing style and how to research interesting topics. Finally each student will write an article which will be submitted to the RNZ in January.
The Rhein-Neckar Zeitung is hosting a competition this year – 24 classes of local schools in Heidelberg will be participating.
A prize of 300 € awaits the article that will be selected by the RNZ as the best one.
Good luck H.I.S. German Junior Journalists!
