Star Reporter participants will receive coaching and mentoring in photography, videography, the art of the interview, and more. In addition, Star Reporters will develop and hone new skills through exposure to state of the art professional software and tools in use by major global companies that are not available to the general public.
Star Reporter coaches will be provided by the Team Atlanta. All coaches will be experienced professionals in the fields of journalism, photography, videography, social media, and marketing.
The Star Reporter Team will meet on several occasions before the Games through video conference technology.
Star Reporters will be asked to attend pre-Games practices and events in their home community and submit photos/video/interviews prior to the Games.
Star Reporters will document the Games in real-time through photography, videography, interview, blogging, and other modes of social media.
Reporters will receive specific assignments each day based on their interests and will spend approximately 4-5 hours daily on reporting activities both in Communications Central and “in the field.”
Reporters will participate in JCC Cares and all other activities throughout the week.
